    Instagram started "gradually rolling out 1080 across iOS and Android" last week, meaning that most people should already be seeing the higher-resolution images in the mobile app. Alas, Instagram on the desktop remains a second-class citizen, as Instagram says that "right now we are focused on mobile, with no plans to share on web."

    Goodbye 640x640, welcome 1080x1080 :)

    To uncover your own 1080px photos, use a desktop browser like Chrome or Firefox to open up an Instagram photo page's source HTML code, then search for ".jpg" within it. The first result should be the URL to the larger version of the picture.

    The source is indeed 1080px, but on display it shrinks down to 638px. Lets see what happens next.

    where did you check it? because the article mentions that now they focus on the mobile app with no plans to apply the changes on web
