How do I use video chat on Instagram?

If you don’t have access to video chat in Instagram, update your app to the latest version in the App Store or Google Play Store.

You can video chat with up to 6 people using Direct Messaging.

To use video chat on Instagram:

  1. Tap in the top right of Feed.
  2. Tap a username or group name to open the conversation. You can also start a new conversation by tapping in the top right and selecting people you want to video chat with.
  3. Tap in the top right. The person or group you call will receive a notification that you're video calling them.

Keep in mind that anyone you've accepted a direct message from can video chat with you. To prevent someone from video chatting with you, you can block them or mute the conversation.
