Since Facebook bought Instagram, many features on Instagram have similarities with Facebook. One of them is the messaging feature.
On Instagram, we are treated with two menu variants to enjoy the messaging feature. Send messages personally and send messages in groups.
Maybe your active Facebook users are familiar with the group chat feature. But on Instagram, this feature is very rarely used because maybe not many people know about it.
If you are looking for a way to create a group chat on Instagram, you have just found this article.
Group Chat Limitations on Instagram
According to Instagram’s help page, we can only add a maximum of 32 people to an Instagram group chat.
So far that’s it, maybe one more, the features are really limited for chatting, features such as stickers, for example, are not many, for emojis themselves, there is not even one.
Steps to create a group chat on Instagram
Let’s see the discussion below.
Open your Instagram application as usual.
On the Instagram homepage, tap the “DM” icon in the upper right corner.
On the message page, tap the “+” icon to start creating a chat room.
Select the people you want to include in the group (must be more than 1 person).
After selecting, tap the “Chat” menu in the upper right corner.
Done. Group Chat has been successfully created.
Here’s an example of when sent a message. Both from appearance to features, it is not much different from personal DM, except that there are some additional features related to group settings. The rest can be said to be exactly the same as personal DM.
How easy is it?
