How do I reply to someone's story with a message?

When you see someone's story, you can reply to it by sending them a message:

  1. Open the story you'd like to reply to.
  2. Tap Send Message at the bottom of the screen, or tap to send a disappearing photo or video. You can also draw on the thumbnail image of the message you're replying to. After someone opens a disappearing photo or video, it’s no longer visible in their inbox.
  3. Type your message or take a photo or video, then tap Send.

Keep in mind that stories disappear after 24 hours. Replies with a photo or video include a thumbnail image of the original story, which is visible to the story creator when they view the reply, even if the story itself has already disappeared.
