From how you capture photos and videos to the way you start conversations through likes and comments, we built Instagram Direct to feel natural to the Instagram experience you already know. When you open Instagram, you’ll now see a new icon in the top right corner of your home feed. Tap it to open your inbox where you’ll see photos and videos that people have sent to you. To send a photo or video to specific people, tap the camera button to enter the same simple photo or video capture and editing screens. At the top of the share screen, you’ll see the option to share with your followers (“Followers”) or to send to specific people (“Direct”). To send using Direct, tap the names of the people you want to send your photo or video to, write your caption, tap “send” and you’re done.
Once you've sent a photo or video you will be able to find out who viewed it, see who liked it and watch commenting in real time. If you receive a photo or video from someone you are not following, it will go to your requests so you can decide whether or not to view it.
Instagram for iOS version 5.0 will be available today for download. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS to find out when it's live.
