San Francisco: Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, has unveiled a new update in which users can send DM on PC through their web browser worldwide.

Ever since January this year, the photo sharing platform has been exploring online DMs with a select number of people.

“Sliding through your DMs. Now you can get Direct Instagram Messages on your desktop, irrespective of where you’re on the planet,” the company shared this Friday on Twitter.

After the project began, Instagram has made minor changes to emulate DMs more closely on the web, such as including the emoji keyboard and attaching a gallery view of photographs and images, notes The Verge.

DM on PC is useful for others, such as journalists, social media influencers and executives, who use Instagram all the time.

This can be seen in the top-right corner of the website DMs on the web browser. Through this link you may also go straight to your inbox.

DMs can be activated by tapping on the message icon via profiles of other users. For Instagram Direct DMs desktop notifications could also be activated.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously told The New York Times that “the three fastest-growing fields of online communication” were “private messages, groups, & stories.”
