Instagram released a new feature today that lets you edit pictures friends send you via direct message. Here's how it works.
Once someone sends you a photo directly, tap the camera icon in the bottom of that message to reply. Then snap a picture to send back.
The original picture sent to you will be included within the photo you reply with and you can then change that original photo by moving it, resizing it, drawing on it, adding stickers or adding text.
The platform also recently began allowing users to invite others to join or request to be added to a live video. Many of these recent additions have been very Story-focused while today's update seems to be geared towards ramping up use of Instagram's direct message feature.
Along with the editing feature, which Instagram is calling "remixing," Instagram has also given users the option of sending a photo or video that can be viewed just once or on loop. Instagram says both additions are available today.
