Instagram continues to tweak the platform as it works on redesigning its feed and making its messenger feature the go-to chat destination for online messaging.
According to mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi, Instagram continues to work on a “walkie-talkie” feature that will let chat members speak to each other by pushing a button whenever both parties are in the chat. Instagram users will have the opportunity to turn this feature on and off.

While not much information has been revealed yet, the walkie-talkie feature looks to be a more synchronous form of messaging than the voice messaging option the platform already has.
In other messaging-related news, Instagram is testing is a new section called “All” in DMs that will include Primary and General conversations under the same tab. It looks like Primary and General tabs will, however, remain as part of the DM interface.
