The official Instagram app is getting a small, but fairly handy update for PC users. For better or for worse, Instagram is breaking from its mobile-centric roots by now allowing anyone using the app on a PC can now upload photos to Instagram using their webcam.
Previously, the ability to capture upload photos was restricted to devices with a touchscreen. That included Windows phones, of course, but also tablets. And though it's a nice feature to have, the quality of most webcams isn't likely to inspire a rush to use them for new Instagram snaps.
Aside from webcam uploads, Plaffo.com notes that this update includes link previews in direct messages. That said, it's worth noting that we haven't seen that particular feature on our end just yet.
In any case, you'll want to make sure that Instagram is updated to version 10.913.38071 to take advantage of this feature. You should be able to grab the update now from the Windows Store.
