In a bid to encourage more users to privately message one another, Instagram announced a new feature it’s calling “remixing.” The process involves editing a friend’s photo sent to you via direct message with stickers and custom text and doodles, and then sending it back to them within another photo of yourself.
Here’s how it works. Once someone sends you a photo directly, tap the camera icon in the bottom of that message to reply. Then snap a picture to send back. The original picture sent to you will be included within the photo you reply with and you can then change that original photo by moving it, resizing it, drawing on it, adding stickers or adding text.
Some other recent additions to Instagram’s offerings include the ability to add older pictures and videos to your Story, to follow hashtags and to post Stories via your phone’s web browser. The platform also recently began allowing users to invite others to join or request to be added to a live video. Many of these recent additions have been very Story-focused, while today’s update seems to be geared towards ramping up the use of Instagram’s direct message feature.
Along with the editing feature, which Instagram is calling “remixing,” Instagram has also given users the option of sending a photo or video that can be viewed just once or on loop. Instagram says both additions are available today.
