If you like to check your Instagram feed on desktop, one of the most annoying things might be that you can't watch Stories. But the social media network's latest update has completely changed all that, meaning you don't have to keep switching to your phone to see what your friends are up (ideal for those who want to get their Insta-fix while at work).

Just tap the camera icon in the top left of your feed to take a snap or add a photo from your library, you can even add and edit text over the image on your desktop device. Then simply click "Share to Your Story."

Instagram also revealed that you can save posts you'd like to revisit later via To find it, just tap the bookmark icon in the top right hand corner. If you're not able to access it yet, keep checking over the next few weeks as it's rolled out across the world.
