Did you recently send a message request to someone on Instagram?
If you did, you’ll receive an “Invitation sent” notice.
The notice indicates that your message has been sent to the Instagram user.
The user can choose to accept or reject the invitation to chat.
“Invitations” is a new messaging feature that was recently added to Instagram for some accounts.
In this guide, you’ll learn what does “Invitation sent” mean on Instagram and why can’t you send more messages.
What does invitation sent mean on Instagram?
Invitation sent on Instagram means that your message has been sent to the Instagram user as an invitation to chat.
The user can choose to accept or reject your invitation (similar to a message request).
If the user accepts your invitation, you can send another message to them.
However, if the user rejects or ignores your invitation, you won’t be able to send another message to them.
Your message will be considered an invitation if you’re sending a message to someone who doesn’t follow you on Instagram.
Why are message requests changing on Instagram?
Message requests are changing on Instagram because Meta wants to keep people safe while making new connections.
Instagram is testing a new messaging feature called “Invitations”.
The feature allows you to send only one message to a user who doesn’t follow you on Instagram.
Previously, you can send as many messages as you want to an Instagram user.
With “Invitations”, you can only send more than one message if the user accepts your invitation.
