How do I view and reply to disappearing photos and videos I've received on Instagram?
If someone sends you a disappearing photo or video, you can tap the blue play button in your Direct thread with them to see it. You can also tap the thread to go to your conversation without viewing it.
To reply to a disappearing photo or video, tap to the right of the conversation. You can also open the conversation and tap . From there, tap to take a photo or video, or tap to send text. When you're done, tap Send.
