The desktop version of Instagram looks like a bad copy of the mobile one, but things change from today: the new web interface is designed for large screens. Although the iPad app is still missing. But there is also the possibility of schedule posts and stories even from the iOS app.

Instagram updates its web interface

For some time, Instagram has put the mobile app, for iOS or Android, at the center of development. A sensible choice: most creatives directly record Stories and Reels with your smartphonemost of the users admire the posts and interact with the followers from the mobile app.

Ma Adam Mosseri, CEO of the company has announced a new interface designed for the web. “We know that many people use the web per fare multitasking and we wanted to make sure the Instagram experience was the best it could be online. ”

The new design on PC

The new Instagram web interface move the icons for Home, Search, Messages and Notifications to the side, so as not to leave all that space unused in 16: 9. But even better is the modification of the Explore and Search page, which shows a grid of contents that expands on the whole screen, instead of limiting itself to the vertical column in the center as was the case before.

The new design allows you to take advantage of the screen to see more content. But it also makes it easier to navigate the app, without having to go back to the top of the page to see the navigation options. In fact, everything we need remains to the side.

Options that would also be perfect for iPad: but unfortunately at the moment Instagram is not interested in developing the iPadOS app.

Schedule posts and stories

Instagram also announced the ability to schedule posts and stories via the iOS app, as long as you have an account Creator o Business. In fact, Mosseri explains that you can program a post up to 75 days later, with also the ability to edit the post before it is published.

In addition, there are news for the Achievements of the creators, an improvement of the video experience and also optimizations for direct messages. In short: Instagram has brought several innovations both for the mobile app and for the web version. That still make it easier to use the social network. As long as you don’t have an iPad.
