The application of Instagram for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store has been updated to become a full PWA. That is, it is a packaged version of the web application and makes use of the Chromium Edge installation process. U move that comes weeks after Facebook's return to the Windows app store also as a PWA.
This long-forgotten Instagram app update, it may be good news for those who also want to use this platform from their computer and with a consistent user experience similar to others.
This move can mean that updates arrive more often and faster, as new features are released.
