Instagram is adding the ability to send disappearing photos and videos to individuals and groups.
The disappearing photos will appear alongside text messages and reshared posts , so you can seamlessly go back and forth with friends in the same thread.
In the recent update version 10.16, you can swipe to the left and see a blue camera icon at bottom to take a disappearing photo or video.
Once done, you can choose to send to groups or individuals.
One can send a disappearing photo to a maximum of 15 persons. This being Instagram, filters are all over. You can add a filter before sending a photo or video.
This cool feature caught my attention; you can check if your recipient has received,opened, replayed or taken a screenshot of what you sent.
In simple words, Instagram is trying to outdo and kick Snapchat out of the game!!
