There might be some cases in which you need to send Instagram DMs from your desktop (PC/Mac). Soon you’ll learn how to do it easily and efficiently.
Here you are going to read about:
Why you Should Use a Desktop Tool for Sending Instagram Messages
Only being able to craft, send, and receive Instagram DMs on your phone may not seem like an inconvenience to the average Instagram user, but if you’re a larger channel sending and receiving hundreds of DMs every day, taking out your phone and typing out each and every response can be incredibly time-consuming. let’s see what other options are available when using a desktop tool for sending Instagram DMs:
It’s much easier to work from desktop
when it comes to sending hundreds of direct messages each day, it’s much easier to be on a desktop. a larger screen makes it easier for you to sort and read your DMs. on the other hand, typing from a physical keyboard is much easier from typing from your phone.
Organize your direct messages
when you are on your desktop, you can filter your DMs into READ, UNREAD, SENT, RECEIVED categories. this way you’ll never miss a message and you can track your activities easier.
Easily add attachments to your DMs
when you are using a tool to send Instagram messages from your desktop, you can easily upload and attach images, videos, and gifs to your direct messages. it’s much easier to handle it from your desktop than your mobile phone.
Manage DMs for multiple Instagram accounts
using a desktop tool, you can manage several accounts from one single dashboard. this is really helpful for businesses and marketing agencies.

How to send Instagram Direct Messages on your PC
Sending messages from your PC is much easier than sending messages from any other OS. It’s as simple as downloading the official Instagram app from the Microsoft app store and following the instructions detailed in the video below.
While Windows users have the benefit of being able to use Instagram’s native app from their desktop, for those who want a more Gmail-esque way to organize their DMs, as well as the ability to send mass DMs to targeted groups of people on Instagram, DMpro is the way to go.
