The Instagram Web site is currently downgraded. That will change soon. The web is testing a web version of your direct messages.

Users will soon be able to send and receive direct messages in the Instagram web version. Web Developer Jane Manchun Wong found the test and shared two screenshots on Twitter showing the new feature:

In December 2017, Instagram was tested with direct a standalone news app. So far, there has been no worldwide implementation, suggesting that Instagram can not completely divide its functionality from messages from the actual network. Current tests show that messages are becoming increasingly important for Instagram. This is also evident from the recently introduced voice messaging capability to Instagram. It is not yet known whether and when the new web-based direct messaging feature will be available to all users.

Respond to Instagram Messages in the Facebook Page Manager

Another boost for Instagram Direct News Facebook announced already on February 7th. Site owners can, if they have linked their Facebook page with their Instagram account, respond to future Instagram messages via the Facebook mailbox.

This feature will be released in the coming weeks for sites in Brazil and the United States. There is still no specific information on global deployment.

t3n says:
The private user should be less focused with this feature. Most likely, Instagram will use the web-based messaging feature to target companies that want to use Instagram even more to connect with their customers. The new feature, when released, should be a tremendous relief for social media managers and corporate website owners. Cornelia Dulgos
