​Instagram yesterday launched a stand alone messaging app and has been named direct

Direct is just yet another app from the tech giant – Facebook. This comes merely a week after the launch of messenger kids.

The new app which opens to the camera the same waysnapchat does, will became available on Android and iOS on the release date in six countries: Chile, Israel, Italy,Portugal, Turkey and Uruguay.

If you install Direct the, the inbox disappears from the instagram app and can only be accessed in the messaging app.

If instagram introduces direct globally, the move could give parent company Facebook a third popular messaging tool alongside messenger and whatsapp
