Instagram is testing a web version of Instagram Direct, according to a recent leak.
The leak comes from known leaker Jane Manchun Wong, and she says that the web version of Instagram on mobile and desktop are getting the chat feature.
Sadly, this isn’t a stand-alone web-app like Facebook’s Messenger platform, but it will be convenient for people that use Instagram as their primary chat app.
