Instagram has announced a new feature for users, allowing short voice messages to be sent to your contacts in Direct Messages.

The update was announced by Instagram on their social media channels, including competing platform Twitter:

The voice message feature lets you send up to one minute long audio clips through Direct Messaging, and as you can see from the screenshots in their tweet, it’s pretty easy. Simply open up a contact, then hit ‘Message’ once there you can tap and hold the microphone button to record, and then send your message.

The update is listed in the apps ‘What’s New’ section in the Google Play Store, and the update is live in the app now. If you haven’t already done so, ensure you’ve updated to the latest version of Instagram to take advantage of it.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
