There’s no doubt that ever since Mark Zuckerberg bought Instagram for $1 billion, he’s bought a lot of innovations to the company. Now, these innovations are not only designed to appease their existing users but to attract new users as well. Instagram, a popular photo sharing app has hinted that it will soon bring it’s renowned Direct Messaging (DM) feature to its web version.
According to Techcrunch, a web version DM feature is currently being tested by the company. This feature, if successful released will enable its users to take their chats on Instagram over the web. To enable this feature, users will be expected to click on the Arrow icon, much like on the Instagram app.
For those who are not aware, Facebook first started off as a website before it became an app. Also, Whatsapp had it’s web version as late as 2015. This expansion means that Instagram Direct could get more userbase and could be a full-fledged messaging app.
However, the company has not made any public comment about the existence of this new feature. No one really knows for sure when the feature is expected to be released to the public. Mark Zuckerberg is trying very hard to promote it as aggressive as possible. Recently, the company started pushing a preview of IGTV videos on users feeds to increase it’ viewership.
