And the Remix feature now lets you do fun things to the Direct photos you receive from your pals.

When viewing a photo message from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and capture a reply.

My photo reply includes a photo sticker of the original image I'm replying to (on the right), which I've moved, resized and doodled on. Instagram's newest photo editing program, aptly titled "Remix", allows you to interact with friend's photos like never before. That's a super cool feature, and a great option to have.

Instagram has not been shy about competing head-to-head with Snapchat, and a new update today continues that trend.

Both updates are available as part of the latest version of Instagram on both the Android and iOS iterations of the app.

The remix feature is just some silly fun that you can have with friends if you have nothing better to do. You can see some examples of works in the image above. On choosing the "allow replay" option, the user can see the message a couple of times. But you can't draw on friends' pictures. Head to settings, scroll down to Support, tap on "Report a Problem" and explain your case to Instagram. It won't take long for people to start finding creative new ways to use these features! Likely, by the time they respond, the issue will have resolved itself, but if you have a feeling your account is being glitchy, or you've had similar issues like this in the past, send them a note!
