Say whaaaaat?

With almost one billion users (seriously) it's fair to say the majority of us are Instagram addicts, so unsurprisingly there's nothing we like more than a good old Instagram update. Although we are slightly worried our Instagram account is starting to make us a jealous person.

Earlier this year we learnt how to unsend direct messages on Instagram (phew) and now it seems Instagram are back with another update for us, and it might just be the one we've all been waiting for.

Yep, you can now post pictures on Instagram without using the app.

How? We here you ask. Well, the new functionality now let's users share pictures outside of the app by using the mobile website.

A spokesman for Instagram confirmed the news to ' (accessed from mobile) is a web experience optimised for mobile phones,' they said. 'It's designed to help people have a fuller experience on Instagram no matter what device or network they are on.'

Sadly you still can't post photos from a desktop device, but this is certainly a step in that direction.
