Ways to Send Disappearing Photos and Videos on Instagram
To send disappearing photos and videos on Instagram, follow these steps:
- Open the Instagram app and go to the home screen.
- Tap the “Direct” icon in the top right corner of the screen (it looks like a paper airplane).
- Select the person or group of people you want to send the disappearing photo or video to.
- Tap the camera icon in the bottom center of the screen to take a photo or hold it down to record a video.
- After taking the photo or video, you can add a caption or draw on it if you wish.
- When you are ready to send the photo or video, tap the blue “Send” button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Keep in mind that disappearing photos and videos will only be visible to the people you send them to for a limited time. They will disappear from the chat and the sender’s account after they have been viewed or after 24 hours, whichever comes first.
Additionally, disappearing photos and videos cannot be replayed or saved by the recipient, and they will not appear in the recipient’s Instagram feed or profile.
