Instagram today improved the private messaging features of its Android and iOS apps through an update. To start, messages between individuals and groups are now threaded, rather than separate. Threaded conversations contain all the shared content in a single stream. The new Instagram makes it easier to forward posts to other users, so public photos can be sent back and forth. The direct message function now also includes a camera for quick selfies, and huge emoji for "when there are just no words," according to Instagram. Privacy is not changed; private feeds will remain private, and those photos cannot be shared with non-subscribers. The new Instagram makes it easier to share with groups, as well include hashtags and location data. The updated app is available to Android and iOS devices today; it's free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store, respectively.
