When you want to send a direct message or message on Instagram, users must use an application or smartphone because the web version of Instagram doesn’t support or provide direct message features.
However, for now, users can send messages on Instagram using their computers through the help of emulators, such as BlueStacks and Nox App Player. But this emulator still has disadvantages, because it will slow down your pc performance when the specifications of the computer are low.
