Instagram has confirmed it’s finally testing the ability to post images and videos to its platform from desktop.
For the past 10 years, Instagram has resisted letting its users post images and videos from devices other than their mobiles. Content creators and social media managers have long sought elaborate ways to work around this obstacle to make their lives easier.
But now, Instagram seems to have had a change of heart and is starting to test the feature with a small number of users. Also, the ability to post from desktop is currently only limited to Feed posting.

Christine Pai, Instagram’s Communications Manager, confirmed the introduction of the change in an interview with Bloomberg:
“We know that many people access Instagram from their computer,” she explains. “To improve that experience, we’re now testing the ability to create a Feed post on Instagram with their desktop browser.”
According to sources, Instagram has seen a big increase in desktop use during the pandemic, and the new feature comes to better integrate the desktop experience.
The change, which would have a big impact on the everyday life of social media managers, has not yet been officially announced by Instagram, but we expect more details about the new feature will be released soon.
