Instagram has become quite a phenomenon throughout the world. Millions of people are posting photos or videos on the platform daily. If for whatever reason you cannot use your phone, and you’re not one of the lucky few who can manage their DMs from the web app, how would you communicate with anyone? If you really need to, you can chat through IG:dm. With the Instagram Messenger app, you can continue sending Instagram direct messages from your phone to your Windows desktop.
IG:dm, A cross-platform application that allows you to connect with your Instagram account and send instant messages to people you want to chat with friends and make friends from all over the world! Enjoy!
IG:dm Instagram Messenger Features
Its name actually stands for Instagram: direct message. It is a program that you can use to chat with other people from Instagram. This function is not available to all the users on the website, which makes it the only way some people can chat from their PC.
It is basically a simplified version of the platform, that does not allow you to post or view any content, but only to chat with people.
Once you connect with your Instagram account, you will be able to search for people you want to talk to and receive messages from other people.
Is it just like the phone app?
Well, not quite. You can chat with people, but it is not quite INSTANT messaging. From what I’ve experienced with it, the messages take some time to be sent from one person to the other. It is not a lot, but still slower than on the app.
It also has some bugs and glitches here and there. When trying to scroll through a conversation, it will automatically jump to the beginning of it and not let you scroll back down. You will have to click on the slider and drag it down yourself.
Aside from this, the option to send images doesn’t seem to work. Whenever I tried to send one, it gave me an error saying that I can only send JPG pictures, even though that was the actual format.
You will be able to continue your conversations from where you left off on the mobile app.
Instagram Messenger has login support for accounts with two-factor authentication enabled.
Disable Read Receipts
IGdm app provides a setting that allows you to prevent users from receiving read receipts.

Save Videos and Images
You can save videos and images in the Instagram posts that a shared with you in a chat.
Search for users
You can search for any user and start a conversation with that user.
Overall, I would advise you to keep using your phone. If not available, some people can safely rely on the website. At least for the moment, IG:dm will need some improvement in order to be a viable alternative.
