Instagram Working on 'Direct' Spin-off App For Messaging
08 Diciembre, 2017, 00:59 | Author: Misty Newman
However, unlike Messenger, which always had the potential to be a full fledged messaging app, Instagram Direct only really works or is relevant within the realm of Instagram and becomes largely irrelevant on its own. Instagram said this is only a test run, but it falls in line with what parent company Facebook did when messaging was shut off on the social media site and transitioned over to Messenger in 2014.
What do you think of the idea of a standalone Direct app?
Once installed on your Android or iOS device, the inbox disappears from the main [Instagram] app and can only be accessed from the messaging app. Now being tested in Chile, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, the app separates itself from the main Instagram experinece while still tying in pretty closely.
Well, get ready for the sequel, as the same thing is about to happen with Instagram. It looks exactly like Direct does on Instagram already so you shouldn't experience a learning curve here, either. I would miss the lack of messaging facility in the main Instagram app but if it means there is even a small possibility that Stories goes away from it and we go back to the good old days of pre-Facebook Instagram then I'm completely fine with it.
'We can push the boundaries to create the fastest and most creative space for private sharing when Direct is a camera-first, standalone app'.
Soon you may have yet another way to privately message friends. Facebook's decision was controversial at the time, but the move has ultimately paid off for the company, with Messenger now boasting more than 1.2 billion monthly active users. The feature saw a big boost in functionality and user base after the launch of the Instagram Stories feature.
Snapchat released its Stories feature in October 2013, and since, several apps have copied the feature. The archive feature is created to automatically save your stories once it expires after 24 hours. When tapping its icon, you'll be greeted by a very familiar interface. From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive. The first story from each day will show a date indicator to help you navigate your archive as you scroll.
