Instagram, since its birth in 2010, has always been Mobile App service only. It does not allow users to create and share posts via desktop browsers. But this is about to change as word is that the company is working on a feature that will allow users to do so with ease similar to WhatsApp.
New Leaks Reported
Alessandro Paluzzi, a developer and app analyst has reported that Instagram is working on a feature that will allow its users to share images and video via its desktop. This means that soon, users will be able to use Instagram via desktop browsers much like they use other apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp.
The developer, apart from sharing the development, also shared a bunch of screenshots giving us insights as to how this feature would work. In case you want to know, the feature would work in a way that is similar to the company’s mobile app.
In Development Only
The images show a new plus button in the navigation bar, similar to what you see on the mobile app. The photos also revealed how the desktop site will allow users to drag and drop photos and videos and edit them (Crop, Apple Filters, Tag People, etc.). Additionally, the overall UI also looks similar to the mobile version.
That said, the feature is still under development. He also mentioned that “This feature is currently being tested only internally. Don’t expect to be able to use it anytime soon.” Lets hope they don’t take too long.
