Instagram Makes Direct Messages Accessible on Desktop

How many times did we try to log in to Instagram using the web version but DMs are not accessible? the answer is all the time. Unfortunately, the web version of Instagram does not include accessing DMs. However, now, Instagram made it easier and expanded its service for the user to access direct messages on the web version.

Back to when direct messages were first tested on desktop, in February last year, anyhow, it began to roll out to some users in January – it was in test mode-. This is a great move from Facebook – which owns Instagram- because it has made its social platforms accessible on desktops and those are Whatsapp and Messenger.

Instagram Desktop Version: 

As for Instagram, the Instagram desktop addition will make Instagram’s Messaging tools more widely accessible because not all users can access the platform via the application because people in certain regions’ data plans are restrictive or network access is limited. Either way, this will be helpful for them and they can benefit from it, so it was a must-do move from Instagram.
