If you are part of the Pinterest community and you have an account there, you probably know that as of recently, Pinterest launched the feature to reply to a comment with an Idea Pin. It seems that Pinterest is the latest platform to enable this option to its users, however, what they promised, they actually fulfilled.

The idea for video replies was first made popular by social media platform TikTok and shortly after that Instagram implemented it for its own platform, so it was obvious that others will follow with similar features as well.
