Instagram is currently the largest photo-sharing social network in the world. With an Instagram account, you can take photos, edit them with lots of eye-catching colour blends, share stories, and send Instagram messages quickly. However, when using a computer, many users don’t know how to use Instagram as easily as on the phone. Don’t worry! This post will guide you on how to receive and send your direct messages on Instagram from PC.
Currently, users can only use all Instagram features when installing this application on smartphones. This means, if you want to find a way to send messages on a computer, you need to download a software emulator, like Bluestack. Details of the steps are as follows:
- Install Bluestack.
- Open the Bluestack software and log in with your Google account, find the Instagram app and install it like the way you do on a smartphone.
- Run the Instagram app with Bluestack.
- Log in to your Instagram account, choose the Instagram Direct icon.
- Click “+” to create a new conversation. Enter the name of the message recipient, then enter the content into the chat frame and press send.
Besides, with the Bluestack app, you can also upload and edit photos, view and share stories with your friends.
You can also send direct messages on Instagram through a third-party application called Grids following the instructions below:
- Access the website: Thegridsapp.com then download this Grid application to your PC. You need to select the installation version that fits your computer.
- Open the application, login with your Instagram account and password.
- When you see Instagram’s interface appear, you can perform actions to send messages on Instagram as usual.
With the Grids app, you can not only send Instagram messages, but you can also perform all similar tasks on Instagram such as sharing photos, comments, follow a certain Instagram account etc.
In addition to Bluestack, you can also install another emulator: Instagrille. Note that when using Instagrille, you have to run on the Pokki platform. Here are detailed instructions on how to send messages on Instagram with Instagrille application that you can follow:
- Access Pokki.com to download the application store dedicated to your computer.
- After installing Pokki, download Instagrille to your phone and install.
- Click on the Instagram icon located next to Pokki in the Windows Taskbar. Open the app and sign in with your Instagram account. Now, you can send Instagram messages to friends and relatives very simply and quickly from your computer.
However, when using Instagrille, you need to note that this software will take up a lot of computer memory and can cause lag if the RAM is too poor. Therefore you need to consider the configuration of the device when using Instagrille to send messages.
The Instagram application is designed to be extremely flexible and convenient to use on the phone. But if unfortunately your phone runs out of battery or has a problem, and you need to text someone on Instagram, then the above methods will be extremely helpful to you.
