Messenger From Facebook, Instagram DMs Get New Features

Visual replies on the photo- and video-sharing network highlight the updates


Facebook revealed several updates to messaging via Instagram and Messenger From Facebook Thursday.

Instagram users on iOS can now send a visual reply in Instagram DMs to a piece of content, with another photo or video of their choice, by tapping the camera icon. Android will be added soon.

On the audio side, Messenger users can more easily record audio messages hands-free, as they no longer need to hold down the mic, instead just tapping to record.
