4. Tap on the picture or video you want to send.

5. Now tap on the send button at the bottom. Before sending you can also prevent the replay of your sent item and choose it to be viewed only once.

And it’s done. Remember that the pictures or videos you send are self-destructing and they will be deleted as soon as the person views your message once or twice. If you are clicking a picture or making a video on the spot, I would suggest you save that by tapping on the ‘Save icon‘ at the bottom left side just before sending.

This way you can reply to any Instagram stories with photo or video provided they haven’t disabled replies on their stories.
