Instagram Video Chat

27/06/2018

With the feed, Stories, messaging, Live, IGTV and now video calling, Instagram is hoping to become a one-stop-shop for its 1 billion users' social needs. As promised, the video chat is on for most of us. 

Video Chat in Instagram Direct

Now, you can video chat in Instagram Direct, either with just one person or a group. Video chat gives you the experience of realtime video in a private space and helps you feel close and connected to friends when you can't be together. Your friends are already on Instagram, and with video chat, you can seamlessly connect across iOS and Android and without a phone number.

Video chatting can be initiated from the Instagram Direct tab with either one other person or in a group of up to four people total. It will only work with people you already have an active Direct thread with, which requires both parties to respond. Blocking or muting someone will also disable that person's ability to video chat with you.

One cool feature of Instagram video calling is that you can minimize the window and bounce around the rest of Instagram without ending the call. 

The continuity calling opens new opportunities for co-browsing with friends as if you were hanging out together. More friends can join an Instagram call in progress, though you can mute them if you don't want to get more call invites. You're allowed to call anyone you can direct message by hitting the video button in a chat, and blocked people can't call you.

Finally, don't miss a call and update your video chat notifications, tap the gear icon on profile and find the new video chat control in Push Notifications.


Happy Instagramming! 😀
