Direct Message Access

Accessing DM through the Instagram application on a smartphone is sometimes a hassle. I imagine if Later can also be used to access direct messages and reply to messages, it will be very practical

    I vote for this feature too !! If we can not respond to our DMs directly with Later, it would be great if we could at least have a view on them, and direct a access to instagram.

    I'm in for this feature - would be great to answer all of the communication out of later!

    Voting for this x 1000, please! It's the number one thing Later is missing that would be so beneficial for our business. We get hundreds of DMs a day and responding on a phone is just not efficient.

    This is an absolutely essential aspect of managing an IG account - I can't believe it's not part of the platform functionality. I hope this is high on the development list of priorities.

    This is SO important to managing an IG account. I feel like Later has to roll this out soon!

    With Instagram now allowing DM from a web browser,is this something that Later will integrate?

    I am a new user, and I am really suprised that this wasn't an option. I really, really miss this. I want to use my phone as little as possible, and Later on pc as much as possible.

    Yes - Please do look at this.  One of the reasons I am trialling Later is because I don't want to have instagram app on my phone.  But will currently have to because of this issue.
