Instagram already has over 400 million daily active users, while Snapchat has only 173 million daily active users.

This will be available to everyone in the coming weeks. The company has no plans to let users upload photos or Stories via the desktop app.

Instagram has also added arrows to help you navigate between posts and stories.
