As an Instagram user, apart from posting images and videos, you can also send and receive direct messages from other users. The messages include text, images, videos, stickers, and many more. Just recently, Instagram released an upgrade that included disappearing messages. What are disappearing messages, you may ask!

WhatsApp earlier introduced the disappearing messages feature. The feature allows users to send messages that will disappear automatically after some time. Later on, WhatsApp also introduced disappearing photos and videos where users can send images and videos that will disappear immediately after they are viewed by the recipient.

Back to Instagram! Instagram adopted the same concept as WhatsApp’s disappearing messages and introduced the “Vanish Mode”. The new feature allows Instagram users to send private messages that automatically disappear after some time. This piece highlights how you can send disappearing messages and photos on Instagram.
