You can now use Instagram's search tool on the web
Instagram’s mobile application makes searching for hashtags, users and even locations a breeze. Up until now, this handy functionality has only been available through the Android and iOS apps, but now the developers are starting to roll this feature out to the web. The functionality remains mostly the same when talking about the web search feature. You’ll find landing pages for both hashtags and locations, similar to what you’d see in the mobile app, which allows you to scroll through a seemingly endless list of photos until you find the right one.
Just a few weeks ago, the search feature on Android was completely revamped, making the whole experience much more functional and easy to use. In fact, Instagram has really been upping the quality of its overall experience as of late. The development team just recently increased the photo upload resolution to 1080×1080 from 640×640, which made everyone’s timeline much clearer.
No, adding search to the web isn’t necessarily a groundbreaking feature, though it’s still a handy addition to the Instagram experience. The developers say search on the web is rolling out now, so head to Instagram’s website to start searching.
