How to Send A Message On Instagram Direct
To send your very first DM on Instagram, take an image as you typically would. You can apply just the same filters to "DM photos" as you can with all other Instagram posts. When you're ready to send it directly to someone (or a team of people)-- faucet NEXT as usual.
From the Share to food selection in the direction of the top of the display, faucet DIRECT (see # 1 in screenshot below). Now tap inside the Write a caption ... window, and type out your message (see # 2 in screenshot listed below).
When you're done composing your message, faucet OK.
Now scroll through your listing of Instagram contacts and also touch the circle next to their name so that an eco-friendly "check mark" shows up. NOTE: you could pick more than one recipient if you want to share a message or picture with a group of people.
When you prepare to send out the photo as well as message, tap SEND TO (NAME).
When they open Instagram, they'll exist with a notice on the "mailbox" symbol as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Upon tapping that mailbox, they'll see that a new message as been sent out from you.
When they tap the message, it exists to them in the format highlighted below.
From here they can reply to your message.
If/when they do, you will certainly have a notification symbol in your mailbox.
The "blue bubble" (see screenshot) illustrates that the image has actually been discussed (as well as for how long back).
When you tap the 'response' in your mailbox, you'll be have the ability to view their response, as well as carry on the 'conversation' if you would certainly like.
