Instagram launches private messaging feature

Posted: Updated:

Social media service Instagram has announced a new messaging feature that allows you to send a photo or video to friends.

"Instagram Direct" lets users send photos specifically to up to fifteen followers.

Those friends will then be able to chat about the photo.

The direct messaging feature will work in real time, telling you when your friends have viewed the photo.

Instagram's founder says the feature is still in the early stages, but hints there could soon be the option to create groups or send multiple pictures directly.
