Instagram has finally started rolling out Direct Messages on the web to all of its users across the world. The company announced the global rollout of this feature via its Twitter account. As mentioned in the tweet, the rollout has already started at 10 AM ET and will take some time to reach everyone out there.
Starting January, Instagram has started testing this feature to some on its users, and finally, after three months of testing, the company has made this feature official to all the users. During this testing feature, Instagram has made all possible ways to bring the same Direct Messages experience on the web as it delivers on the app. During this trial, the company has added features like emoji keyboard and added a gallery view to photos and videos.
Web DMs are especially convenient for people who use Instagram all the time, like reporters, influencers, and social media managers. It makes it quite easier for people to communicate privately on the platform, especially if someone is trying to respond to possibly hundreds of messages a day.
Giving people access to more private messaging, whatever their platform of choice, has been Facebook’s stated goal since last spring. The social media giant has been trying to offer unified messaging across all of its core apps, including Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.
