Instagram Will Now Notify If A Friend Takes A Message Screen Shot

Instagram has announced a new Snapchat-like update to its photo-sharing social network that notifies a user if another user takes a screenshot of the direct message (DM) shared. However, the feature that’s being rolled out will be applicable to the new disappearing message feature.

While unveiling the feature, Instagram said:

Unlike other messages in Direct, these photos and videos disappear from your friends’ inboxes after they have seen them. And you will see if they replayed it or took a screenshot. You can share this post with your friends” — offering a user a few ways to officially share the image if you tap the button.

To use this new feature, a user need to swipe right into the camera in order to take a photo or video. Once taken, the user can send the photo or video privately by tapping the arrow.  These pictures can be sent to individual users or a group of users at the same time.
