Instagram has added a new function to your system, and now you can send voice memos through direct messages.
Popular app users can exchange audio messages up to one minute long in private or group conversations.
To record them you have to keep pressed the microphone button and start dictating the message. This will be sent automatically when the user releases the button. If you do not want to send this audio, you'll have to switch to the dumpster icon, just like in WhatsApp.
The update is now available on devices with platforms iOS and Android.
