Instagram finally hits Windows desktops

Instagram has followed up with the recent launch of its app for Windows Mobile by announcing a Windows desktop version. Everyone can now download the standalone app from the Windows Store. Everyone running on Windows 10 tablets will now be able to browse their feed, view Stories, and check and send direct message.

iPad users won’t be too pleased with this piece of news as Instagram didn’t provide any hint of a standalone version of the app for them. What this means is that the wait to reach iPad users with the visual content social sharing platform continues, at least until the next update. “ Today , we’re excited to expand to more of the Windows community by bringing Instagram to tablets running Windows 10.”

According to Instagram, any device running on Windows 10 will be able to download and use the app. However, the company said some of the app’s features will not be available to people using Windows 10 devices other than tablets and smartphones. Some of the features that may not be supported include, capturing and uploading videos or photos. To upload images according to The Verge , you will need a PC with a touchscreen.

Great work no doubt, but it sounds odd that you can’t upload images when using the desktop version if your PC doesn’t support a touchscreen. Perhaps, the Facebook-owned app will fix that in the next update because it really sounds bizarre. While we await any future update of the app for Windows desktops, I guess you may just have to make do with what you have got at the moment.

Instagram had launched a Windows 10 mobile version of the app last April, and quickly saw a lot of users downloaded it between that time and now. A Windows 10 desktop version will further boost the company’s user base, which has been on a steady rise since the app was acquired by Facebook.

The Windows 10 mobile version of the app supports Live Tiles, [which shows you updates right on your home screen], Instagram Direct, Explore and video. Instagram is always in the news, and recently added a Snapchat-like feature called Stories . As a matter of fact, the company’s CEO Kevin Systrom didn’t deny the fact that the new feature was taken out of the books of Snapchat when asked to confirm the news: “They [Snapchat] deserve all the credit”, insisting that “This isn’t about who invented something. This is about a format, and how you take it to a network and put your own spin on it.”
