Is it possible to use Instagram on a laptop?

I’d really been meaning to join Instagram. :( I just broke my only iPhone.

I want to join it for a while, everyone says it’s the coolest thing since Facebook. Now I only have my laptop. Help?

    Using BlueStacks App Player you can create a virtual environment that lets you run apps from your phone fast and fullscreen on Windows and Mac. It's literally having any Android app working in full on your computer. I use it for various things, and yeah, including Instagram as well.

    I see you're a Windows user. Check out Instagrille, which runs in the Windows taskbar and allows you to upload and browser instagram on your PC.

    Yes. You can most definitely use and sign into instagram on your computer but you must have a Mac book to upload vids/pics. I think you can upload vids & pics if you have a nonmac computer that contains a webcam also!

      hi yanii, does this mean i can use instagram on my mac book, create images and upload, without having a smart phone? the post above from guy m, apparently from help at instagram, says not. (my mac book has a camera i can use, and i have many photos saved as well. i've never yet used instagram, and know little of computer technology.) thnx!
