Facebook-owned Instagram has all (well, mostly) the features enough to entice users. Continuing to add more, the photo-sharing app is expected to take its Direct messaging to the web soon.
According to a report by TechCrunch, a web version of Instagram Direct Messages is being tested by the company, which will allow users to take up their chats on Instagram over the web.
If Instagram adds its Direct messaging to its web version, it is most likely to be made available by clicking on the Arrow icon, much like on the Instagram app.
For those who are unaware, Instagram’s parent Facebook initially had its messaging service on the web, which eventually became an app, and its sibling WhatsApp got its version of the web, back in 2015.
With its expansion to the web, Instagram Direct could get more userbase and could be a full-fledged messaging app.
However, there is no word on when the new feature makes its entry as there is nothing official by Instagram.
So stay tuned for further updates.
To recall, Instagram recently started pushing a preview of IGTV videos on users’ feed to increase the viewership. But not much excitement it could cause.
