Instagram is known for its simple and easy-to-share photos application with millions of active users. The service recently jumped on board and introduced direct messaging. A feature that has existed in Twitter and Snapchat in ages.  At first, Instagram Direct Conversations feature were the lack of feature and missing certain design elements.

However, the company has quickly improved this functionality and revamped the whole entire feature. Direct Messaging in Instagram is now sleek, straightforward, and you will receive notification when someone send you a new message or reply to an existence conversation.

The notifications feature might annoy some people if they continuously receive messages from marketers, their friends while at work, or just don’t like getting notifications from Instagram at all. You can quickly turn this functionality off right from your Instagram app.
