Unfortunately, there isn’t any official feature for Instagram direct messaging on the web version. Moreover, this feature is still unavailable on some powerful third-party Instagram management platforms, like Iconosquare.  But fortunately, we found a complete, free desktop DM solution for Instagram. It’s called AiGrow.

With AiGrow, you can manage all your DMs, respond to them easily, send DMs with attached images and videos, search for messages from individual channels, and filter the inbox to show read, unread, or sent messages. 

The best part is that unlike other desktop messaging apps, AiGrow is a complete, free desktop tool. It doesn’t require any download and works on all operating systems.

To see your old direct messages on Instagram, simply visit their website. Create your account, add your Instagram account, and you are done! 

After you have added your IG accounts, hit “Manage Accounts”.  Now, there are two features you can use to manage your DMs on Instagram.

With Inbox, you have full access to all your direct messages. Simply scroll your DMs to find your favourite message from who you want. You can also search for their name, and then you open up your chat with that person. 

After opening your favourite message, simply click on load more to see all of your old messages, even the first one.

Also, if you have a message that you want to send to a large group of your followers, you can automate the process. Simply create your message, choose the people you want to send the message (current followers, new followers, or a custom list of followers), and press “Start”. AiGrow will start sending out your message automatically until it is sent to all recipients.
