    WOW just noticed those new things!
    1. You can register an IG account from the PC's browser
    2. You can see video views (something like insight?)

    Am I missing something or what? Why those changes? I'm really surprised by the first, didn't expected it.

    I like the new video views Feature. Normally id get 5K likes for a photo..I go to my latest video which had 4K likes... Now has 20K views...makes the account look even stronger. Looks like ill be taking more videos now.

    I was only able to sign up via web browser once.

    And I like the new video views update as well.

    I'll try to get a screenshot asap. From my MacBook I don't get such option, from the iMac yep.
    And the IG update about videos was today for me. I'm in EU.

    Sellers of IG followers are about to rejoice if IG starts allowing browser sign ups.

    I was just thinking the same thing. If we had just thousands and thousands of fakes/bots, now we gonna have like millions.

    it seems they're randomly testing the thing.

    with more and more traffic going mobile, and almost a billion users in their platform, I don't see the point of such a move now ...

    Don't see it, sign up page won't appear for me. Browser sign up possibly got taken down?..

    From the same IP, I can see it on an iMac but not on a MacBook, so I believe that the update is rolling those days

    They're rolling it out slowly to US and UK. For who asks the point of such a move.. there's still a 20% traffic to be gathered from desktop users which have shitty phones/don't like them, and will never signup if not trough a web form.
    That's it. Prat of the reason why fb has 1+bln users and ig 1/3
