Instagram has just released a new feature where you can actually video chat your friends. The same people that are able to DM you who follow you and are followed back by you can video call you whether you’re on the app or not.
- To start a video chat, swipe into your Direct inbox and open any message thread
- Tap the new camera icon in the right corner, and the video chat will ring your friends’ phones
- While on the video chat, you can minimize the video and multitask on Instagram, sending messages and photos in Direct, browsing your feed, posting a story and more.
