To get started accessing Instagram with increased features on your computer, first go to the Instagram website Next Log in and go to the browser menu (three dots in the upper right corner of the screen). Then go to More tools > Developer tools.
The window will appear divided, and half of your screen will display the developer tools. Next, click on the second icon in the top bar of that window.
After this, you will be able to view the Instagram webpage as if you were using the mobile app version. In the top menu bar, you can also adjust the view format and the device type.
Next, refresh the webpage (click F5) and Instagram will display the same appearance as in the mobile app version. Hereafter you will be able to access Instagram Direct, to publish content, or post Stories.
If you're using Google Chrome, fortunately there's a browser extension that allows you to view live Instagram broadcasts without having to repeat all of the previous steps on your computer.
First, open the Google Chrome Store. Then search for IG Stories in the search field (top left of the screen), and on the next page, select Use in Chrome. There are several popular extensions such as App for Instagram with Direct, or App for Instagram (Support DM). After confirming the installation, click Add Extension on the tab that appears to make it easier to access.
