Post photos on Instagram without downloading the Instagram app
The mobile Instagram website now lets you post photos on your account. Alongside this feature, the website also lets you use the Explore tab of Instagram.
The upload functionality is only restricted to uploading photos and cropping them and adding captions. It still doesn’t allow you to upload a video, edit a photo, or even apply filters. However, you can edit your profile, or create a profile for that matter from the mobile web version.
This upgraded mobile website version was first spotted by Matt Navarra. Instagram later confirmed it to TechCrunch, “Instagram.com (accessed from mobile) is a Web experience optimized for mobile phones. It’s designed to help people have a fuller experience on Instagram no matter what device or network they are on.”
The mobile website now looks a lot like the app itself with a light version of the Explore tab as well. The mobile version lets you see posts, notifications, your profile, and even like photos of others. It even lets you comment on them if the need be. The adding photo feature is not visible to everyone as of yet, so maybe it’s a gradual rollout that should arrive in the coming days.
