In the past, an Instagram user can only create Stories through the app.
The photo and video-sharing network now allows a user to do that on the mobile version of the website.
The feature has been rolled out to all users today.

This development comes just after Instagram allowed users back in May to post pics without using the app.
Instagram had been continuously looking for ways to improve the functions of its website and app the past months as reports have noted.
One of those functions introduced last year allowed users to save posts on the app for later viewing or posting.
Mashable noted that while many users in the United States and Europe rely on the app, Instagram has searched for ways to increase the functionality of its portal.
The move was considered as a way to attract more users in markets where the app “may be too data or resource intensive for many users,” Mashable added.
Instagram introduced Stories in August 2016, and when it turned a year old three months ago, the company announced back then that Stories had 250 million daily active users.
Not only that, users now spend more time on Instagram as the company revealed that users aged 25 and below are spending an average of more than 32 minutes a day in the app.
On the other hand, users who are 25 years old and older spend 24 minutes a day in the app.
Instagram also said many businesses are users of Stories.
More than 50 percent of those businesses posted a Story during in July, Instagram added.
Instagram now lets users create Stories and even post pics through the mobile version of the website.
