Instagram's apparently working on making its direct messaging available on desktop apps and web browsers.
Tipster Jane Manchun Wong tweeted screenshots of browser-based and desktop versions of Instagram Direct on Tuesday, before noting that the Facebook-owned social media service had disabled access to the prototype she'd found.
Instagram has traditionally been mobile-focused, but last month Facebook said itthe backends of its messaging services, letting Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram users message each other without switching apps.
Since Messenger and WhatsApp already have browser-based versions, it makes sense that Instagram should follow suit.
Instagram didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
