Instagram has updated the web version of its platform, which can now provide access to direct messages. The new feature was recently made available to users in a global release, and the new Direct Messages Icon is located at the top right of the app when using the desktop mode. After selecting the icon users can easily manage their incoming and outgoing messages. Users will also receive desktop notifications for incoming messages.
Overall the feature adds a much larger degree of compatibility for desktop users, as direct messages have increasingly become an important part of the platform. Additionally, it allows users to have a more streamlined experience through seamless switching between their desktop and mobile device.
