Another month, another new feature. Instagram has introduced a new feature that will let users start private group messages directly by clicking the sticker attached on the Stories. The company has introduced this feature today via their Twitter account.
Instagram users will soon be able to add a “join chat” sticker to their Stories. If the viewer taps on the sticker, they will automatically get added to a private group chat. However, the owner of the account can approve or deny the chat request.
Instagram is promoting the “join chat” sticker as a new way to connect with friends, and while Instagram may have killed plans for a dedicated Direct messaging app, it’s clear that both DMs and Stories are important to the platform.
