Facebook rolled out a new feature that allows users to cross-communicate between Instagram and Facebook Messenger. Moreover, Instagram rolled out a new update which added new features to Instagram DM’s taken from Facebook Messenger. In this new update, the following features are introduced:

Today, we’re announcing an update to Instagram DMs by introducing a new Messenger experience on the app. Messaging has come a long way since we first brought it to Instagram. We’ve been exploring how messaging should evolve as we grow. On Facebook’s family of apps alone, people send more than 100 billion messages to their friends and family each day. These days, we rely on video calls to hang out with friends, send memes and GIFs to communicate what we really think (but can’t always say), and share funny photos and voice notes to stay in touch.Instagram Blog
The update is not available for all users yet. Instagram Users can decline the option to update, it is totally up to the user whether they want this update or not. However, Facebook believes Instagram users will say yes to the new features.
We’re also adding more than 10 new features so you can stay close to your friends. Selfie stickers are a unique hybrid of Boomerang, emojis, and selfies – and a new way to react to conversations. Watch Together lets you watch trending videos with friends on IGTV during a video call. We’re also introducing vanish mode, where you can set messages to automatically disappear after they’re seen.Instagram Blog
