Instagram could let you react with a voice message to a Story

Instagram is reportedly working on a new, Snapchat-like way to respond to your friends’ stories. According to Alessandro Paluzzi (a developer who discovers upcoming new features through reverse-engineering apps), Instagram is working on a feature that will allow users to create voice messages as another way to react to Instagram stories. In a tweet, Alessandro Paluzzi shared an image from Instagram stories. In the Paluzzi screenshot, we can see that there is a new microphone icon located in the area where the story answers are, which will most likely allow you to record a voicemail and then to send it in reaction to an Instagram story.
It’s worth noting that although Alessandro Paluzzi found the voicemail reaction feature in the Instagram app code, that doesn’t mean Instagram will release the feature. Sometimes developers create a feature that for some reason they don’t implement in their application. There’s also no word from Instagram about this potential feature. The new response category that Instagram is developing is another proof that Instagram is trying to improve its platform. Like us before reported, Instagram no longer sends a direct message to the author of a story when you like a story. The change was made because Instagram wanted DMs to focus more on conversations between you and your loved ones.
