Is Instagram competing with Whats-app and Facebook Messenger?
Couple of days ago Instagram has added a new feature called Close Friends in stories sections, sounds promising right!, Instagram did not stop upgrading with this feature, it became more Loving by other new feature voice note Direct messaging like WhatsApp walkie-talkie, similar to how WhatsApp introduced Voice Notes on its chat messaging platform. The feature allows users to share audio messages to up to a minute in group and single threads across devices, both on Android and iOS.
Voice messaging inside Direct will let users record messages when pressing and holding the microphone button. Once you released your finger, the message will automatically send to the other person. If you wishes to delete or re-record an audio clip all over again, you will have to slide their finger over to the trash can to delete it.
Direct voice messages in Instagram Direct stay indefinitely and aren’t limited to a certain timeline but we don’t think that today’s addition will allow Instagram to compete with WhatsApp and Facebook messenger as a messaging alternative, because each platform of them has its own audience.
