California: If WhatsApp voice messages were not enough, Instagram has also added the new communication feature to its app.
A new microphone button has been added to the photo and video app. You simply need to hold down the microphone in Instagram Direct and record a voice message.
Unlike WhatsApp where you first choose the recipient, on Instagram you can first record the message and then share it with a single contact or group, FastCompany reported.
Additionally, these voice messages appear in the receiver's chat window as a Wav file and don't disappear after being listened to.
