It seems as if Instagram is constantly adding updates, easily making it the ultimate user-friendly social media app. Instagram stayed true to their announcement last November on adding disappearing photos and videos to direct messages.

The newly added updates include the following:

• Messages will now appear in circles at the top of the screen, similar to the way Stories are
displayed on one’s feed
• All direct videos/photos will be embedded in a thread
• Camera icon will have easier access right next to the conversation thread
• Blue camera feature sends disappearing photos/videos

With these updates, Instagram continues to improve their user-friendly game and is evolving into a much more snapchat-esque app.
