How to Reply to a Specific Message on Instagram DM (Android, iPhone, and PC)

You can reply to a particular message in Instagram DM, and let’s see how.

I use Windows 11 PC, iPhone (iOS 15.1), and Pixel 4a (Android 12).

Android or iPhone

Let’s see how to do this on Android or iPhone.

  1. Open the Instagram app. Go to the Home tab if you’re not in it already.
  2. Hit the Messenger icon at the top right.
  3. Open the conversation (person or group) you prefer.
  4. Long press the message for which you want to reply. Remember that the message can be yours or other people’s.
  5. You will see the Reply option on the bottom left. Hit it.
  6. Type your message and hit Send.

That’s all.

Note: If you want to close the quoted message preview, hit the X in it.

Here’s an alternate way:

Slide the message to the right if it is other people’s. If the message is yours, then slide it to the left. Type your response and hit Send.
