How to Like a Comment on Instagram

Finally! Instagram recently rolled out an update that allows you to like (love?) comments. When you like a post, you tap on the heart to let the user know. Well, when you like a comment you can tap on the newly added heart next to each comment on a post. This is a feature I’ve been wishing for since I started using Instagram, and it’s finally here! Here’s how to like a comment on Instagram.

How to Like a Comment on Instagram

  • First, make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of Instagram.

  • Then open the Instagram app.

  • Find a post (of yours or someone else's) with comments.

  • Tap the heart icon next to a comment to like it.

That’s all there is to it! This is especially nice because now you can let people who comment on your posts know you appreciate their comment without needing to reply to every one.
