Big news: Instagram has rolled out its brand new video chat feature!

Along with new camera effects and topic channels on the "Explore" tab for its Android and iOS apps, you can now do a video call with your friends—whether you pick a single person or a crew of four. Nifty!

Here's how to use it: Swipe into your Direct inbox and open a message thread, then simply tap the camera icon on the upper right. The best part is that you can actually still multitask on the app while video calling—just minimize the window and go on scrolling...or sending screencaps to share the #tea. 

This cool trick comes right on the heels of Instagram's introduction of IGTV, by the way, so there's a ton of new feats to play around with. Keep 'em coming, 'gram!
