Instagram has announced several new ways to reply with photos and videos. They’ve added the ability to reply to photos, videos, and reshared posts in Direct Messages.
You’ll see a new reply button with a camera icon. This will open up the camera with a “sticker” of what you’re replying to. This allows you to literally react to the photo or video. You can also tap on the sticker to do a split-screen.
This might be a small update, but it once again shows how Instagram is continuing to improve their app. Snapchat adds dancing hot dogs while their app is still a steaming pile on Android. Instagram is adding valuable features to improve the experience.
