Instagram, ever since its acquisition by Facebook, has slowly been expanding on its image as a social media platform. In its latest bid to increase the ways in which users can access the platform, Instagram has now finally brought direct messaging to Windows 10.

Instagram has updated its app on the Windows Store which now allows users to access their direct messages on their Windows 10 PCs. The interface of the app is very much like the one you’d experience on the web, but, with one addition; the DM button. Being able to send and receive messages on Instagram has just got more convenient, with the feature now being accessible on Windows 10 machines. Sadly, those who browse Instagram using web browsers will not be able to use the feature since its only available in the Windows app.

Instagram has slowly been expanding and opening up the ways in which users can engage with the platform, by initially making it possible to browse images using a web-browser. Slowly it allowed users to interact with the posts as well, allowing for comments, reactions and likes to be posted through the browser. In its recentmost development, Instagram brought Stories to the web, allowing people to view stories, but not interact with them. For the most part, posting content on Instagram via a web-browser is still missing, and likely that it would be the last thing the Facebook-owned company brings to its feature set.

In case you would like to use Instagram’s DM feature using your Windows 10 PC, then you’d need to download the Instagram app from the Microsoft Store.
