Instagram’s got a new feature that will take us back to the days of trying to communicate with our neighbor friends…before we were allowed to have cell phones. It’s a walkie talkie feature that goes directly to your pals’ DMs. All you have to do is record up to one minute of audio, and you can send it along to the friend of your choice.
Unlike Instagram stories, the audio clips don’t expire. So understand: whatever you send to your pals will be in their DMs f-o-r-e-v-e-r. No sending your deepest, darkest secrets using this feature as it will surely come back to haunt you.
All you have to do is open up a direct messaging conversation with the person you’re trying to chat with. Press and hold the microphone icon, and record away!
It’s simple, but it could be dangerous if you send the wrong thing to the wrong person. Tread lightly, friends!
