You will not find any major changes in the direct messages feature on the Instagram web from that of the mobile app. You will see the option for direct messages on the top right corner of the screen. You will notice that the chat window looks similar to the user interface as we found in the mobile application along with the emoji keyboard and the option to share photos and videos.
