Instagram Launches Video Chat Feature in Instagram Direct

Posted by @audreylaine, Jun 29, 2018

Close on the tail of Instagram’s IGTV launch comes a brand new feature that could have you spending more time chatting IRL: Instagram Video Chat!

I first saw this yesterday when I opened my Instagram app and saw a new Story from Instagram. The Story shows you the new feature’s capabilities but in this article, Later walks you through each step to get started.

I wondered if this feature was also available to business accounts and it is. I could “call” Mayo Clinic, but when I switched to the Mayo Clinic account, I didn’t see the option to call Audrey Laine.

Note: You can only start a video chat with someone with whom you’ve had a Direct Message conversation.
