How to Use Instagram Direct

Instagram Direct allows you to share your videos and photos privately rather than on your public account. You can share a photo with up to 15 people, which makes it easy to share a photo with your close friends or family without worrying about it being seen by others. To use Instagram Direct, simply follow these steps.

Step 1:
To start using Instagram Direct, make sure you have the latest version of the app. Then, take a picture or select one from your camera's album.

Step 2:
Once the picture is open in your Instagram app, add any effects you wish, such as filters or captions. This step is the same as when you choose to share a photo publicly. Then tap the button for Direct.

Step 3:
Choose the people with whom you wish to share your photo or video. You can only share with those you follow. Once you have compiled the list of people, select send.

Step 4:
You can also send a photo or video with Direct from the Direct inbox, which you can access from the home screen. When you are in your inbox, tap on the + button. This will load the camera, and you proceed you normally do. You will also see any inbound messages in your Direct inbox, as well as who has opened your direct message and any comments or likes.
