Direct messaging feature of Instagram which allows you to chat privately with friends or group of friends look like heading to the web edition of the photo and video sharing service.
The Facebook-owned service was searched by software engineer Jane Manchun Wong while testing out the feature, who also shared the screenshot of the prototype.
Based on the snapshot shared by Jane, the interface seems to be similar to the mobile app, but it looks like the support is being made for the mobile browser and not desktop version immediately.
In a different tweet, Jane also shared the image of Direct on Web for desktop, but accomplished it with another tweet saying the prototype has been disabled.
It’s not yet clear as to when the official update on feature will be extended to the masses.
