IG develops not only a mobile application but also an official web resource. It was impossible before to view the publication. Today, users can use the photo-sharing platform to perform the most common tasks: view images, videos, and pal's stories, search for individuals, check out the "Recommended" section, to follow profiles, post content, like and write comments.
However, the image-centric platform doesn't have all the features that visitors are accustomed to. It serves for emergency cases when there is no access to the smartphone. For instance, you can't get access to personal correspondence and upload a Story. Private Instagram messaging on a computer is possible, but you need to use different tricks.
If a person wants to correspond on a PC in a private chat, he can't do this on a personal computer due to the lack of the function itself. You are able to write messages on IG via a PC only when installing a minimalist desktop client from the Microsoft Store on a Windows operating system. The user can select one of the following options:
- For desktops and laptops with an operating system belonging to the 10 Windows line. In this case, the person is invited to install the program from the official store.
- For earlier versions of the operating system, you can use third-party programs that emulate Android. They provide an opportunity to open various apps created for smartphones.
- For everyone who wants to stimulate users and potential clients to come over to profiles, the ideal solution is an IG bot with a DMs service. How to look at DMs on Instagram online through Private Messenger you can read below.
