Responding to comments on Instagram has always been confusing, to say the least. It's never really clear who's responding to who, because the comments just pile up in the order they're written.
Well, Instagram is finally making the comment situation a lot easier to manage by introducing comment threads. Instagram announced the much anticipated update in a blog post on Monday.
The threads are automatically generated when you click the reply button below a comment. Any response on the original comment is grouped together to create a fluid conversation.
The threaded comments come with Instagram version 24 and above, so make sure you're running the most updated version of the app. The update will be rolled out for iOS and Android in the next few weeks, so you don't have it yet, sit tight — it's coming.
