Instagram has a new feature; it allows you to send a photo or video to friends through “Instragram Direct”.
The new feature lets users send photos specifically to up to 15 followers. Then the friends can chat about the photo.
The direct message feature will work in real time, telling you when your friends have viewed the photo.
Instragram’s founder says the feature is still in the early stages but hints there could soon be another option for users to create groups or send multiple pictures directly.
