Instagram Direct on PC: how to send messages via the web version | Social networks

Instagram Direct now works on the PC directly in the web version via the browser. The feature, which has been in testing since the month of January, allows you to access all online conversations on your computer, without having to download external programs. Through the tool, it is possible to share photos stored on the PC and give likes in the texts with two clicks, just as it happens in the social network application for Android and iPhone (iOS). The function was very much requested by users, who needed to resort to tricks or had to install the Instagram program for Windows 10. Check out, below, how to send messages on Instagram Direct by PC directly in the browser.
