Instagram To Get Private Messaging In Next Update?

According to GigaOm, the popular photo sharing app, Instagram will be getting private messaging feature in the next update.

Well-placed sources tell us that the company is gearing up to launch new private messaging features inside its still red-hot photo and video sharing service. It is also experimenting with the idea of group messaging, our source tells us. The new features are likely to find home in the next version of Instagram, which is expected before end of the year. An Instagram spokesperson (not surprisingly) declined to comment.

You can download Instagram for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone on the respective app stores.
