Instagram still isn’t letting people upload pictures from a desktop computer, but an update to its Windows 10 app has introduced support for sending photo and video DMs. You can access the feature by launching the app and clicking the camera button in the top left.
Once you’ve taken a picture or video, you can alter it with stickers, text, and drawings. However, Instagram requires you select contacts to send it to, unlike on mobile.
You must take a new picture from within the Instagram app, meaning you can’t use the feature to send images or videos from your hard drive.
