Instagram Stories on Mobile Web... coming soon.

Instagram has revealed that it will soon support uploading Stories via mobile web browsers. With the new functionality, Instagram users will have the option of uploading videos and images to their Instagram Stories using a tablet or smartphone's web browser, such as Safari or Chrome, in lieu of the Instagram app itself.

Mobile web uploading for Stories will arrive at some point in the next handful of months, but ahead of that Instagram has launched its Stories product on desktop and mobile web browsers. Anyone can now view Instagram Stories using either browser type, whereas previously the feature was limited to the Instagram app.

However, if you're hoping Stories in their full glory will be coming to the desktop, we're sorry to say they will not. The company confirmed to The Verge that it has no plans to bring Stories uploading to desktop browsers.
