Instagram Direct: How to Change Chat Themes

Give each conversation a different appearance

Facebook recently began rolling out its integration of Messenger From Facebook features into Instagram Direct. This gives Instagram users access to new features, such as the ability to customize their emoji reaction bar and to send selfie stickers.

Once you upgrade your Instagram Direct experience with these new features, you’ll also be able to set a different visual theme for each of your conversations. Our guide will show you how this is done.
