Instagram Users May Soon be Able to Post from Desktop Browsers

The function is currently only being tested internally.

Instagram’s desktop website is just a passable way to browse the photo-sharing network. In reality, it is one of the only ways for users to access Instagram on an iPad, as the company has yet to release an iPad app (and most likely will not). However, though you can view posts and submit direct messages from the website, you cannot create new posts.

If a recent study is to be believed, this may change very quickly. Alessandro Paluzzi, an app developer and analyst, tweeted that the Instagram desktop website is working on adding support for creating posts. That is currently only available on mobile applications and the mobile website.

Paluzzi has activated the upcoming feature on the desktop website and shared screenshots of how it will function. He did not, however, clarify how he got the feature to function in the first place.

Nonetheless, based on the screenshots, it is clear that it will be just as strong as the one found in the mobile app if Instagram does launch this feature. Users will be able to generate new posts from the desktop site, according to the screenshots. Furthermore, they would be able to crop images and even apply filters to them before adding captions to them.

Obviously, it’s unknown when or if Instagram will make this feature available to users. Bringing posting help to the website, on the other hand, will solve a slew of problems for iPad users who have been clamouring for an Instagram iPad app. Not to mention the additional benefit of being able to post directly from your devices.

So, what are your thoughts on this feature? Is this something you’re interested in, and are you willing to use the desktop website on your iPad instead of a native app? Tell us in the comments.
