Instagram gets an updated website that functions like the mobile apps

Instagram launches new website that functions nearly the same as the mobile apps

Instagram users will finally have a place to go on the web to view pictures posted on the Facebook-owned service. Today, Instagram has introduced a new website that functions primarily like its mobile apps, save for one small feature. The website doesn't offer a way for users to upload pictures to the service.


Other than that, the website will serve all of the same functions as the mobile apps. "As of today, you can now browse your Instagram feed on the web -- just like you do on your mobile device," Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said. "Your Instagram Feed on the web functions much like it does on your mobile phone. You can browse through the latest photos of people whom you follow with updates as people post new photos."

The website took two years to become a reality as Instagram was primarily focused on helping users capture photos on the go. With Facebook now owning the company, they are looking to expand their horizons and provide access to the service across any platform a user would like to use.
