Instagram Web has been out for a good while now and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the web feature to check out Instagram Stories & Posts when I’m away from the phone. The only feature which Instgram web lacked was the ability to DM a user via their web interface.
But today, Instagram Web has rolled out their new feature which is the Instagram Web Direct messaging feature globally to the public now.
Instagram announced this news on their twitter with the cheeky line *Sliding into your DMs* :
*Sliding into your DMs*

There are few instances where few got the option and few have not. And it’s been exactly six hours since this feature came out and we being an Indian based blog, have been able to access this feature.
This feature was first tested to the small percentage of Web Instagram users as per Engadget. Feature wise, you can send messages, photos and videos from the web. Basically, you can engage with your DMs or groups just like the way you would in your mobile Instagram app.
This was also one of Facebook’s main goal to give the freedom of usage & interaction among their apps namely Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram. I wouldn’t wonder if they bring a single app to interact with people to these platforms in the near future.
Wondering how you can access the Instagram DM feature on web?
Step 1: Login to Instagram on web at Instagram.com
Step 2: Click on the small arrow symbol next to your Home Button to access your messages.
Step 3: Enjoy messaging your friends on Instagram Web DM feature.
Step 4: Follow @meshpiemag on Instagram 😛 .
This feature is going to be handy for ones who have already reached the maximum limit of accounts that can be managed via phone. We at Meshpie have thoroughly loved the Instagram web messaging feature and will continue to use the same.
