The social network Instagram test the ability to create and upload posts on the desktop web version of its service, which allows for the first since the implementation of the service on desktop computers in 2012.
The media consultant Matt Navarra shared this Thursday in Twitter the discovery of the function that allows you to publish from the desktop version of Instagram.
Navarra has also shown that it is available in the service icons located at the top right on instagram.com, in a position between the Direct Messages and the Explore compass.
The new function appears highlighted with a text that reads: “Now you can create and share publications directly from your computer”. By clicking on the icon, shaped like a square with rounded edges and a ‘plus’ symbol inside, the platform directs you to create a ‘New Post’, for which you can drag or upload images and videos.
Later, These contents can be cropped to original size, square (1: 1), portrait (4: 5) or landscape (16: 9). Likewise, it is also possible to edit the image by raising or lowering the level of brightness, contrast, saturation, temperature, shadows and vignetting, as well as adding filters that appear in the mobile app.
As in the application, the user can write a description, indicate the location, change accessibility options and make advanced settings.
Until now, Instagram had never allowed to create ‘posts’ in its desktop version since the creation of the service for computers in 2012, but it incorporated direct messages in 2020 and a renewed carousel design for Stories.
