Soon, sending a message on Instagram will be as easy as pushing a button. The social media platform is set to launch a new voice chat feature on the app that lets users record a message and send it to a friend, according to TechCrunch.
Now, in the Instagram app, users can navigate to a private chat with a friend and hold down the microphone button in the message box. Similar to Apple’s iMessage, the recorded message will appear as an audio wave form that recipients can listen to.
Users can record messages that are up to one-minute long. The feature appears in Instagram’s direct messaging section in the message box. Recordings never expire so that users can listen to them as often as they want.
