Instagram has finally made some feature updates to Instagram Direct that finally makes it a true messaging service, and also eliminating annoying habits many on Instagram have right now.
Announced in a blog post today, version 7.5 is currently available for both iOS and Android.
The primary improvement to the feature is that you can finally send content from your feed as a Direct Message. Previously, Instagram Direct was limited to original photographs to share with others. Now, users can share photos directly with one another, and clicking that photo will bring the user back to the source.
