Instagram Direct Gets ‘Walkie-Talkie’ Style Voice Messaging Feature
Instagram Direct, a feature that allows you to communicate with other Instagram users, has been upgraded with the ability to send voice messages. The new addition works just like a walkie-talkie as it sends your voice message the moment you release the microphone button.
Instagram announced through a tweet on Tuesday, the new feature to send voice messages in Instagram Direct is rolling out globally. The feature is aimed to help you not just share your photos, small video clips, or some text with other Instagram users using Instagram Direct but also send and receive voice messages. Unlike working on a traditional voice messaging system where you need to tap the send button to send your voice message to the recipient, Instagram’s update works more like a walkie-talkie and requires you to hold the record button until your message is completed.

“Starting today, you can send voice messages in Direct,” the Instagram team tweeted. “Talk the way you want to be heard, whether by whispering what you’re up to or shouting a compliment.”
