Instagram is thinking about allowing users to post from their computers. Several Twitter users noticed that the test feature had gone live this week. Over the course of the pandemic, the company saw an increase in people browsing Instagram from their computers rather than their phones.
The test is not available to everyone and only allows users to create posts for the main feed.
The new test feature is the company’s latest sign of life for its desktop product – Instagram added the ability to view Stories on the web in 2017 and added direct messaging late last year.
It’s good news for those who use most apps and social networks from desktop computers saving time from switching back and forth between devices.
