Instagram now allows messages on Direct through the browser

Instagram finally implemented a feature long requested by users of the social network, replying to private messages through the browser itself, without having to use an application on the computer. The news was given through the official media of the social network, including his Twitter account . The functionality starts to be available to everyone from this Friday (10).

The resource finally arrives after several tests, a first made internally and a second one that has been going on since the beginning of this year, a small number of people had access. Over time the tool gained updates that made it more similar to the mobile version, it is possible to use it to have individual or group conversations, and also to share images, videos and use emojis.

The absence of functionality was something that was sorely missed on Instagram, just by using the cell phone or downloading an application it was possible to manage the account. Other social networks and apps like Twitter, Whatsapp, Facebook, have come a long way. For those who need to keep an eye on private messages, such as reporters, social media managers, influencers and other loyal users, the change will have a very positive impact.

Another detail to the new will send you message notifications through the browser after you log in with your account, even if the site of the flap is closed. The changes are in line with the speech of Mark Zuckerberg, who told The New York Times that private messages, group and “Stories” are among the fastest-growing points in social networks. In the statement, Zuckerberg also comments on efforts to give users more privacy.
