Instagram Is Testing Direct Messages On The Web

Instagram is reportedly testing the messaging function on the web, which is currently only available on its mobile app

Instagram is reportedly testing the messaging function on the web, which is currently only available on its mobile app. If the function makes it to reality, we can finally send Direct messages without our phone, pretty handy if someone is in work hours.

Instagram’s spokesperson said that the test was currently going on and only a small percentage of users can see it live. The company also revealed that the function would allow users to access their Direct inbox, send, receive messages, as well as creating group chats. Other abilities are replying to Stories right from DM, sending pictures from the web browser, sharing posts, and be notified if there are unread messages.

Adam Mosseri, the head of the photo-sharing app posted a Tweet about the test this week. He said that the function is available to a small number of users for now but the company hoped that it worked well so that more people could be benefited from it.

Jane M. Wong was the first to spotted the test and shared it online in February 2019. Back then, the company said that it always tested new features to improve its service. So now, it appears that Instagram is serious about the idea as it has been sticking to it for more than a year.

When asked about a global rollout of the feature, Instagram’s spokesperson said there was no exact schedule for that. So now, for those who have been chosen to be the few who have the chance to use the feature before everyone else, you can kiss your productivity goodbye.
