Instagram is testing the ability to post videos or photos via the desktop version of the app.
Alessandro Paluzzi, a notable tipster has shared screenshots of the new feature that is currently tested internally by Instagram.
The screenshots show that desktop Instagram users will be able to upload photos or videos by just dragging them to the uploading section.
Users will be able to upload more than one video or photo as well. The “Browse from computer” button will be available if you don’t want to use the drag and drop feature. Once the content is uploaded, you will get an option to select the aspect ratio of the post and there will be four options, including Original, Square (1:1), Portrait (4:5), and Landscape (16:9).
Instagram will give options to select “filters” and “edit” photos in a similar fashion that is seen on the Android or iOS apps. After you tap on the “Next” button, you will be able to add captions, tag people and add alt text and check advanced settings before posting photos or videos on Instagram.
Sources say that the browser-based posting feature will take a while before reaching the public.
Currently, users can only post on Instagram using the mobile version of the app.
