Instagram is adding a new way for users to add stories from the mobile web – though they’re not opening up native posting from desktop just yet.
As you can see, there’s now a camera icon at the top left of the mobile web home screen. Tap on it and you’ll be able to take a photo, or add one from your library – but you won’t be able to save it like a regular Instagram post. Instead, what you will be able to do is add it to your Story.
Instagram Stories has been one of Facebook’s biggest winners in recent times. Now up to 300 million daily active users, it makes sense for Instagram to provide more access to the option, enabling more users to take part and get accustomed to the Stories experience.
