The folks at Instagram dropped another announcement today with some new updates for the service. Instagram Direct now lets you send images privately to up to 15 contacts rather than posting them to your stream for everyone to see. You can choose to send private images and/or videos to your friends where they'll show up in their private inbox.
We're not totally sure that it's an alternative to sending files over BBM or even just plain old MMS, but it's always nice to have options.
If you're running the OS 10.2.1.1055 leak you can get in on the Instagram Direct fun right now thanks to version 5.0. We've tested it out on a Z30 and it's running without a hitch. Just note that you'll need to be running the leak to be able to install APK files. If not, you can always convert it and sideload the old-fashioned way, though you may need to use the debug method.
