General News Instagram now allows uploading Stories via mobile web; here’s how it works

Instagram wants to leave you with no excuses for not using its Stories features. Earlier exclusive to the app, Instagram is now rolling out the ability to add Stories via mobile web as well. Which means, if you don’t have or don’t want to use the Instagram app, you could login through the web browser in you phone and upload stories from there. Up till now, the mobile web app of Instagram was pretty much like the desktop app, plus it allowed you to view other people’s stories, but not upload. You could only view, like and comment on pictures.

Although, to be fair, as of now, the Stories feature on the mobile web is pretty basic, which means, you can only add photos and place some text on top of them. Instagram’s many other fun features — like face filters, stickers, and different post types — aren’t available yet. So you can’t do videos yet.

Coming to everyone in the next few weeks, users will see a camera icon in the top left corner they can tap to shoot or upload a photo for their Story. We were able to use the feature on Safari web browser.

Meanwhile, tapping the bookmark icon on feed posts sends them to the Saved folder that’s accessible from the top right of the screen. But there is still no word on whether posting will come to desktop web. However, if you think about it, it might be awkward posting vertical portrait images from a landscape computer screen.

This move by Instagram is smart, and it would really work in its favor, and much against Snapchat, if Instagram manages to rollout the new web capabilities before Snapchat. The latter has also been working in a similar plan itself.
