1. Edit Your Messages

2. Pin Chats to Top of Inbox

3. Toggle Read Receipts in DMs

4. Save Your Favorite Stickers and Upgrade Your Replies

5. Personalize Your Chats With More Themes

About the new features

One of the standout features is the ability to edit DMs. Users can now edit their Instagram DMs for up to 15 minutes after sending them. This helps in getting rid of any typos in the message. To edit the message, users simply need to press and hold a message and tap on edit.

Moreover, they can now pin their favourite chats to the top of the inbox for quick access, instead of having to scroll through the chatbox to find the right chat window. And if you wish to hide the fact that you’ve read someone’s messages, you can now toggle read receipts for all or select chats.

Alongside this, Instagram now allows you to save your favourite stickers in DMs for easy access. Additionally, stickers, GIFs, videos, photos and voice messages are available when you reply to a message. The social media platform is also giving chats a makeover by introducing new themes such as Love, Lollipop, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and more.
