Now users can can publish photos through the browser version of Instagram.
It seems that Instagram's administration decided to give users more opportunities to use the site version, not only for viewing, but also publishing their photos. With the release of the update for Instagram in the mobile version of the site, you could view the publication, search, track and receive notifications via a mobile or desktop browser.
But, in Instagram decided to go further and in the fresh update of the mobile version, now users can also post their publications without using application for Andoroid or iOS. They also added a lightweight version of the "Explore" tab, which recommends communities and users that you might be interested in, based on your current signatures.
The upgrade is primarily targeted, to emerging markets with weak mobile Internet networks, but other users will not be left out, being useful to them. The company could safely work with its current 700 million users, but anyways increasing of the active followers of Instagram work is ongoing.
Nevertheless, despite the modernization, the use of Instagram through the mobile site will not be as functional as in the mobile application. Yes, you can upload images, but the use of filters is disabled, and the video can not be uploaded. Sending messages in the mobile version of Instagram is also not available.
But, we assume this is only for the time being, because it's only the first update.
