Instagram is getting over a half dozen new messaging features. The changes include the ability to share music previews in DMs, the ability to send a message silently, the ability to see who’s online to chat with, the ability to reply to messages while you browse your feed, and more.

Instagram New Messaging Features:

Reply while you browse:

This feature enables users to respond to a message that they received while browsing the feed. All of this happens without users losing a track of the post that they were checking out. The image shared by Instagram shows that when users respond to a message while scrolling through the feed, it will blur the post in the background and the message will appear on top of the window while the message bar will appear at the bottom for users to respond.

Music sharing:

Instagram will integrate with Apple Music, Amazon Music, and, soon, Spotify, to allow users to share 30-second song previews in chats.

Quickly send to friends:

With its latest update, Instagram is also making it easier for users to reshare a post with their friends without losing track of the place where they were in the feed. Instagram says that by tapping and holding the share button, users can effortlessly reshare posts to their closest friends.

See who’s online:

To make it easier for users to chat with friends on Instagram, the company will now show who is free to chat at that moment at the top of users’ inboxes.

Play, pause, and re-play:

Instagram will now let users share a 30-second preview of a song with their friends directly within the chat. This feature is powered by Apple Music and Amazon Music and soon it will support Spotify.

Keep it on the lo-fi:

Additionally, the photo and video sharing app is bringing a new lo-fi chat theme to make users’ conversations feel more personal. Instagram is also adding the ability to create a poll in group conversations. The feature was part of Messenger and is now coming to Instagram’s group chat.

Send messages quietly:

Now Instagram users will be able to send messages without notifying them late at night or when they’re busy by adding “@silent” in their messages. This shortcut will deliver the message without notification. Meta is bringing similar functionality to Messenger with the ‘/silent’ shortcut.
