Instagram has finally rolled out the much-awaited feature that the users had been demanding for years now. The company announced on Friday that the users can now send and receive Instagram direct messages on the web as well. For many people, who accessed Instagram through their desktops, chatting was quite a task for them but not anymore.
The Facebook-owned app has been testing the DMs with selected users since January but it finally rolled the feature out in April. Earlier, the users could only send a direct message on Instagram through mobile apps.
On Friday, Instagram announced on its official Twitter account about the new feature. “*Sliding into your DMs*Now you can get and send Instagram Direct messages on desktop, no matter where you are in the world,” the tweet read.
Despite having too many messaging apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, some people still prefer communicating over Instagram. The photo-sharing app gives you an option to share pictures and videos from within the app and you can also share external images,videos etc. The users also get a wide range of emoticons, GIFs and many other things that would make chatting fun. However, the biggest advantage the Instagram provides is that it allows users to unsend messages but there is a catch. The receiver will get a notification when the sender deletes a message. Interestingly, the feature is also available for desktop users.
