Facebook has announced new features and updates for Instagram Direct and Messenger to help users better express themselves. The company has introduced new camera stickers on Messenger and Messenger Kids celebrating the diversity and impact of Asian and Pacific Islanders (API).
You could conduct interviews, for example, invite fans and customers onto streams, you could share the stage with influencers, etc.
Going live with another person can also feel less intimidating than broadcasting alone. And as shown by the recent rise in audio live-stream platforms, people are clearly interested in more authentic, in-the-moment connections at this time.
The company said in a blog post:
“You can use one of four Messenger camera stickers to support and raise awareness of key issues important to the API community.”
“Kids can explore the richness and diversity of unique traditions, histories, and cultures across Asian and Pacific Islander countries through a series of Messenger Kids camera stickers,” it added.
New features for Instagram and Messenger
Instagram now shows if and when your message has been “seen”. For example, it will show if your message was “seen now” or “seen 5h ago”. This would replace the active status that Instagram would show in DMs.
Facebook announced today it will begin rolling out new functionality that will allow Instagram and Messenger users to communicate across apps, in addition to bringing a host of Messenger-inspired features to the Instagram inbox.
Through a set of privacy tools, users can specify who can check their main Chats list. If an Instagram user doesn’t want to hear from anyone on Facebook, they can turn this feature off.
If you are an audio messaging fan, the company is making it easier to go hands-free with tap-to-record on Messenger.
“Now, you no longer need to hold down the mic — tap-to-record allows you to craft the perfect audio message while you’re doing other things and makes it a more accessible feature,” it added.
