Instagram is making some awesome changes to its DMs, making them more like Apple’s iMessage.

Edit Messages

Oops, typo! No worries. You can now edit your messages up to 15 minutes after sending them. Just tap and hold the message, then select “Edit.” The other person won’t see your original message.

Pin Important Chats

Keep your favorite chats at the top of your inbox. Swipe left or tap and hold a chat, then tap “Pin.” You can pin up to three group or one-on-one chats. This feature is coming soon.

Control Read Receipts

You can already turn read receipts on or off for individual chats. Go to “Settings and Privacy” > “Messages and Story Replies” > “Show Read Receipts” to toggle it.

Save Favorite Stickers

Tired of scrolling through endless stickers? Press and hold a sticker to save it as a favorite. It’ll make it easier to find later.
