You Can Now Upload Photos to Instagram from Your Desktop Browser

Saturday, May 20, 2017

I noticed something today when I opened Instagram from my mobile browser. I can now upload photos to Instagram without using its own app but from a browser. I think Instagram is trying to widen its users.


But if you try to open Instagram website from your desktop browser, this button doesn't appear. Install each of these add-ons below onto your favorite browser.

Mozilla Firefox: User-Agent Switcher
Google Chrome: User-Agent Switcher for Chrome

Once these add-ons are installed, you can select which type of browser you're using. You can either choose Android or iOS and then try opening Instagram again, you can now upload photos from your desktop browser.


This is going to save me a lot of time uploading photos to Instagram, since I often use computer to edit my photos. But keep in mind, the photo will be in square (1 x 1) dimension.
