Instagram, a popular social media platform from Meta Company, introduced a reply feature a few months ago. However, it was only available in certain regions. But, recently, Instagram made it available worldwide. The reply feature allows users to respond to any message in Instagram Direct, including reels, stories, posts, and even their own messages. This feature has proven to be very useful as users can now engage in conversations more easily and conveniently. Moreover, it has made communication on the platform more efficient and streamlined.
In the upcoming sections, I will guide you on how to use the Instagram replay feature.
Types of replying on Instagram
When it comes to interacting with others on Instagram, it’s important to understand the two types of replies available: comments and direct messages. Replies to comments are public and can be seen by anyone who views the post, while replies to direct messages are private and can only be seen by the person or group that you’re messaging.
