Instagram for the web has received major updates, allowing users to submit stories from their desktop web browser. Previously, Instagram users could only view stories on their desktop and post stories using their mobile app.
However, the Facebook-owned company has now made it easier for users to manage their accounts on desktop computer browsers as well. Instagram users now have a variety of choices available at the top right corner of their tab, including the ability to send messages and publish posts, as well as an explore tab that allows users to find new posts.
Users may now edit their photos on their Desktop computers and post them immediately to the web. The feature is no longer limited to the mobile app anymore. Almost all of the functions accessible in the mobile app are now available on the desktop web browser. The only thing you can’t do from a desktop web browser right now is upload Reels.
Instagram is also developing new ways to make the site more secure for young users. The photo-sharing app will now launch a new feature that will advise teens to stay away from harmful content and encourage them to “take a break” from Instagram. Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice president of global affairs, announced the new features. Clegg made the statement immediately after an ex-Facebook employee turned whistleblower made startling accusations about Facebook hurting teenage users via Instagram.
