Instagram DMs Coming to a Desktop Near You!

By if-admin | January 21, 2020

 

Could it be? The much-awaited desktop version of DMs is FINALLY here? Well, almost. Instagram talked about and tested this functionality around February of last year, however, they have now confirmed that it will be happening and are slowly rolling out direct message access via their web-based platform.

 

 

 

It’s still in the early stages of their test phase, but hearing this is great news!

Desktop version for DMs not only makes it widely accessible to those who prefer IG’ing on their laptop, but also makes it so much easier to keep things organised. This is a great way for brands and bigger companies to stay on top of their customer’s messages, rather than going through Facebook’s Direct page, which is incredibly clunky.

 

I’m sure we are all looking forward to this addition, and we’ll be keeping our eyes open!
