Instagram Will Remove The Direct Messaging (DM) App

Next month, Instagram's direct messaging app Direct will be terminated by Instagram. Direct Messaging is also known as DM.

The social media site will end its support for the direct messaging application. The messages in the application will not be lost but will be moved into the Instagram application.

Matt Navara, who is doing research on the social media industry, said that on a Twitter share, users will now encounter a warning message when they enter the application. It also appeared here that the Direct Messaging application will be removed next month.

This application of Instagram was not very successful when it came to the popularity of the social media platform and did not see much demand. However, no explanation was given as to why the application was removed. Apparently, this application will also follow Facebook Messenger.

In December 2017, Direct application opened to users in Chile, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Turkey and Uruguay. The app was then planned to spread worldwide.

The application was similar to Snapchat during the first period. Instagram officials said that for four years the messaging feature, which is part of the platform, can be used more efficiently if it is its own application.

No comment from Instagram until now.
