Instagram adds likes and comments to web interface

New, 17 comments

Instagram has revamped its web version, adding likes and comments and refreshing the color scheme.

New Instagram Web
New Instagram Web

Instagram has expanded its web presence with the introduction of more interactive features from the app onto the browser version. It's now possible to like and comment on photos, and you can log in to edit some more profile options, a major shift for the service. It's also got a new blue-and-white look that's more reminiscent of the app, instead of the dark theme users saw before. Despite this, there's still not feature parity between app and web. Photo browsing is limited, as is your user profile, and we don't see most of the updates that were recently brought to the iPhone version. Still, it's another move forward from Instagram as it shifts from an iOS-only experience to one that increasingly works across all devices, and it's likely it will be expanded more over time. It's also good to see the updates keep rolling out post-Facebook acquisition.
