Instagram Direct Messaging FeatureDirect Messaging has become an increasingly popular feature of the phone-based app, allowing users to send and receive instant messages, whether they are sharing Instagram posts with one another or just saying hello.

Designed for smartphones, the social media giant only allowed users to view and like photos from a desktop computer, reserving its other features, like editing and posting images and sending DMs, exclusively for its mobile app. But as the world’s collective social life has gone digital as a result of shelter-in-place orders connected to the coronavirus crisis, Instagram is expanding the ways in which users can access its most popular features.

Sending and receiving Instagram-DMs via web browser works exactly the same as on the mobile app: when you log in, you’ll see the Direct Message icon in the top righthand corner. Once you click on it, you’re able to scroll through all of your existing conversations on the left. You can also DM someone directly through their profile. Instagram also allows its users to set up a desktop notification for DMs, so you can be informed the minute someone sends you a message.
