Instagram Direct Gets Support for Portrait and Landscape Orientation, Plus Links

Instagram Direct

But that is not all, in fact, Instagram is also is allowing automatic links to phone numbers and addresses to be sent through Direct, which will prove to be useful and convenient for every user.

Instagram has been updating their app at a rapid frequency.

Instagram on Thursday began two new elements to its direct messaging service, bringing support for landscape and portrait photo/ video alignments along with the capability of sending website links. This is an update many users would be thankful for. It is an interesting feature and adds another dimension to the regular photo-based social network that Instagram is.

"Now, whenever you send a permanent photo or video to your friends in Direct from your camera roll, you don't have to worry about cropping it", Instagram said on its blog.

Theresa May said Britain's terror threat would remain at critical, indicating a terror attack was imminent. Mr Burnham added that the revelations were "arrogant, wrong and disrespectful".

Instagram Direct is the direct messaging feature of Instagram where you could hold one-to-one conversations as well as group chats with your friends. This is a welcome move as it will help people to share images without cropping it.

'Landscape and portrait uploads in Direct are available today on iOS, with Android coming soon. Instagram Direct, for so many years, did not allow sharing of links. When a user shares a phone number or address on Instagram Direct, it will appear as a link. Links will now be shown on Direct messages with the page's main photo, title and a part of the page's text. However, following today's update, the links are now clickable, and they also give a preview of what's inside.

Instagram has been adding more features to its mobile app to further compete with other photo and messaging apps.

Instagram has launched many new features over the past 12 months.
