VSCO reveals 'Messages' feature, takes on Instagram's DMs

DPReview.com - Latest News - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 11:49am

VSCO X subscribers and free users alike will soon have access to a new direct messaging feature simply called Messages.

VSCO announced the feature earlier this week, bringing its app up to speed with Instagram, which has allowed direct messaging for ages. Using VSCO Messages, users can share text, images, DSCOs, profiles, and journal entries directly with other users who follow them. Direct messages can only be sent between followers, and they're joined by the ability to leave a conversation, block the user, and/or report them if necessary.

VSCO X subscribers are getting access to the feature first, but free users will get Messages in the near future.
