Direct by Instagram is a new way to directly message friends on Instagram. Send private chats, currently in limited release.
I don't see any reason for this product to be created and I'm afraid that they will deprecate an in-app messages, so I will be forced to use the new app.
I don't see any
Another messenger app == another battery hog
NoNoNo!! Please don't do it.
No at all
app, absolutely, has no sense
It seems like they are looking to 1) have another place to run ads 2) keep attacking SnapChat.
Not a whole lot
Not user need for this
Why in the hell is it available just in Uruguayan apple store ?
I tried to use it but when I change the account via instagram app and turn back to direct app it didn't go on with active account's direct messages. It is automatically showed me other account's DM. And you can not change it using direct.
There is no pros
Not suitable with multiple account management
Instagram tries to become Snapchat, but compared to Snapchat Instagram sucks.
battery hog, nobody uses it
I can see a huge potential in this. Messaging is getting bigger and bigger these days. And a lot of people follow people they don't know on Instagram and now it's easier to have private conversations with them. Email is not a huge thing for young people today but they spend a lot of time on social media, and this is a great way to make closer connections. I hope that this experiment will be featured in the Instagram app in the future so I don't have to have another app. Looking forward to trying it.
Connect with people outside own network in a fun way
No need to be stand alone.
Absolutely no one:
Not a single person on earth:
Facebook: Let's make messages tab a separate 1.2gb app and make everyone install it and jump between apps awkwardly when they press a button
FFS, stop splitting apps into other apps, it's not a good idea
