What does one do once you need to post pictures or videos on Instagram from a PC? Differently you'll do all this on your PC is by adding a Chrome extension called INSSIST. This extension does similar things but adds an appealing Instagram UI. But is that each one it can do? In fact no, read on to amp up your Instagram game on PC.

INSSIST Chrome Extension: Best Instagram for PC Experience?

INSSIST is Chrome extension that helps you to post photos, videos, stories to Instagram from the browser. Here are some useful things it can do.

  • Post photos/videos
  • Post IGTV/stories
  • Download Posts
  • Use Instagram in dark mode
  • Hashtag suggestions

To get started you first need to install the chrome extension from here. Once done, press the newly created extension icon on your toolbar to launch INSSIST. You'll notice it’s almost just like the Instagram app (on iPhone). You'll just about do anything like scroll through the feed, scroll horizontally to look at stories, like/comment on posts, save a post, tag friends in comments, etc.

You can not only upload videos to Instagram from Computer, but it also supports uploading videos to IGTV, Stories also as Reels. In our testing this features worked well. Also, it’s the sole Chrome extension that supports Video uploads from Computer at the instant. The steps make it the same as you'd do on the Instagram app on your smartphone.

There are two limitations once you post content. First, once you post a story, you've got tagging tools, stickers, marker tools, etc, but don’t work as fluently because that’s not the app that work on smartphones. Also, you don’t get the infinite amount of Instagram filters like you have get in Instagram mobile app. The second issue comes while, choosing a thumbnail for your video posts. You simply get 2 free custom thumbnails, after which you've got to upgrade to pro. However, there’s a work ground to bypass it. Continue reading, you’ll find this method within the post assistant point.

INSSIST can do far more than uploading photos/videos to instagram. In fact, it's four major feature tabs – Direct Messages, Post Assistant, Insights, and Analytics, let’s check out them one by one.

1. Instagram Direct Messages on PC

The first feature tab is direct messages. While Instagram web client also support direct messages, this chrome extension takes it one step further. It's a ghost-read mode which when enabled doesn’t mark any message seen and skim even once you open it (Pro feature, limited time preview)

2. Post Assistant

Remember I told you this extension doesn’t allow you to pick custom thumbnails? Well, this feature, in my opinion, is that the INSSIST’s way of burning their own fingers. Although this could be a design error that the post assistant tap may be a cheat of creators studio with all the features intact. Therefore the drawback we faced within the first points are often easily fixed here.

I know you've got to abandoning of the Instagram mobile app like UI, but you get all the benefits that the creator studio has got to offer. If you’re not conversant in the Creator Studio, you'll read more about it intimately here.

You can also plan grids, post carousels, schedule post and make use of the intuitive calendar function. This was all you've got to try is click on a go back the calendar, add content and schedule the post. You'll also view all of your previews, scheduled, draft posts during a grid format within the calendar.

3. Insights

If you’re a creator, gaining insights from fellow creator can't only assist you grow your Instagram following by posting relevant content but also meaningful information like spam followers on your own profile. Insights tab allows you to track two Instagram users with the free version. Besides the standard info like total posts/followers, posting time, post engagement details it also allows you to keep a track of hashtags used.

My favourite feature during this tab is that the check spam followers/following feature which shows you the share of spam followers you've got or a particular public account may need . All this info can easily be downloaded during a zip file also .

4. Analytics

Analytics may be a feature which will be very useful to you to trace what percentage followers you gain a day and the way many you lose. You'll manually check the amount or enable automatic check. This scans your Instagram account at regular intervals and presents to you an inventory of latest follows and un-followers. This list like format makes it easy for you to see the follower’s profile. You furthermore may have a sign for private/public and verified/unverified profiles.

This tab is hence great to interact with the users who have unfollowed or followed using the direct message option, which automatically pops up once you hover over any user.


Well, in my opinion this extension is well worth the try. It hasn’t ever failed me and has plenty of extra features over the other option currently available. I also feel that if you’re a creator or someone who posts on Instagram frequently, getting the professional version for $5 gives you a great many added features like advance DM filters, bulk scheduling, zen mode, unlimited insights. So, what are you waiting for? Try it out now!
