Instagram now lets you video chat with even more friends
Instagram is updating the video chat feature so you can connect with even more friends.
The feature lets you video chat with anyone you have an active direct message with.
Instagram added the video chat feature in June, allowing users to video chat with anyone they have active direct messages with. Plus, up to four people could participate on the call.
The feature also allows you to multitask. So while you’re talking on the video chat, you can minimize the chat and still browse your page, post a story and more!
The company is making video chatting even better. Users can add even more friends to the group call with the update. Up to six people can now video chat in Instagram Direct.
