Instagram continues to present itself as one of today’s most popular social networks and is the platform of choice for young people. After launching its web version some time ago, it remains very limited compared to mobile applications.
Now the social network has officially confirmed that it has begun testing private messaging also on the web version of Instagram. If this feature is eventually made available to all users, it will greatly improve the overall user experience across platforms.
Instagram will become platform of choice for private conversations
While only present in its Android and iOS versions, users are increasingly using Instagram as the platform of choice for private conversations with friends and followers. Guaranteed, if this feature also reaches the web version, it will see a huge increase in the number of users who take advantage of private messaging.
For now, only a limited number of users have access to the new feature. However, it is believed that once all minor bugs in its operation are eliminated, it will eventually become available to all users.
According to information advanced by the social network, the new feature will include the ability to share images in private messages. Interestingly, posting new photos via the web version of Instagram is still not possible.
While the arrival of private messages is great news, it is true that users would prefer to receive support for posting new photos directly from their browser.
