While the official Instagram app for Windows Phone might have been recently updated, the client of choice for users of the platform remains Rudy Huyn's 6tag. The app has been updated to version 5.7, which adds a beta of Instagram's recently launched improvements for its Direct messaging feature.
The improvements include allowing Instagram users to begin direct conversations with friends based on a specific Instagram post, along with support for threaded messages. In a Twitter post, Huyn stated he has added support for "list directs, list pendings, see text/images/video/post shared/likes, send text, send likes" to the 5.7 version of 6tag. Since he considers these new features to be in beta, users might encounter some bugs.
