New Instagram Direct, Snapchat Clone Rolls Out

Facebook recently announced a new feature, Instagram Direct. “…the new Direct makes it fast and easy to turn any conversation into a visual conversation with photos and videos. Texts and reshares will now appear in the same thread with disappearing photos and videos so you can seamlessly go back and forth with your friends,” the company wrote on its blog.

Like rival Snapchat, Instagram Direct allows users to send disappearing photos to a friend or a group of friends. This also functions much like Instagram Stories, which debuted earlier this year.
