Instagram will soon allow users to post from tablets and desktops

Facebook owned social media giant Instagram is working on unveiling a new feature for its users which will allow them to post and share content directly from their desktops and tablets but this social media photo and video sharing application has not yet confirmed the launch date of the feature but it is expected to roll out by the end of this year. The social media platform had earlier launched the Live Room feature for the people caught amidst the pandemic to make their day a little bit cheerful.

As per the information provided by the app developer Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) via Twitter it seems that Instagram is moving from its mobile oriented approach to enabling orientation with more devices like tablets and desktops. “Instagram is working on the ability to create posts from the desktops using the website,” Alessandro informed. He further wrote, “This feature is currently being tested only internally. Don’t expect to be able to use it anytime soon. But let’s hope it doesn’t take too long.” – hinting that the feature will take some time to be rolled out. There are also reports that the popular photo and video sharing social media platform is currently undergoing an internal testing phase of the Instagram desktops post feature and so it will take some time till it is unveiled to the world.

The feature will support editing, cropping, applying filters, adding location and tagging users for posting images which is quite similar to what is present in the current mobile app version. The introduction of this highly requested feature by Instagram will attract a new range of users thereby increasing its popularity. Though Alessandro’s tweet has given a hint still some elements and features could be added in the future, one of them being posting images directly by using webcam. Still a lot more things needs to be clarified by the company like the availability of Instagram Reels and Stories features in the desktop version. It is expected that either Instagram or its parent company Facebook will make an announcement regarding this feature which will make things more clear for the better.
