Instagram today announced the launch of a new “Remix” feature for Direct Messages, which is designed to allow users to remix their friends’ photos and then send them back for “fun conversations.”
When viewing a photo message from a friend, you can tap on the camera icon at the bottom and to create a reply. The reply includes a photo sticker of the image you’re replying to, which can be moved, resized, and edited with additional stickers, text, and drawings.
Instagram is also now allowing users to control replays. The new “One View” option will let friends see a message just once, while “Allow Replay” will allow friends to view the message for the standard period of time. Photos and videos sent using the “Allow Replay” option will loop automatically.
Instagram says the new features are part of Instagram version 24, which is available now on iOS devices.
