Once more, Instagram is trying a new feature. However, this one does appear to be quite excellent.
It was revealed by a representative of Instagram’s holding company, Meta, that the business is “testing the ability to schedule content with a percentage of our worldwide community.”
With the new functionality, anyone will be able to schedule their grid postings in advance in addition to the creators who can already arrange their Live broadcasts up to 90 days in advance. Few users who had the ability to test it out were the ones who first noticed the change.’
Here’s how it seems to work:
- Prepare a grid post.
- Once you’re at the final step — the one after you’ve finished editing, and can tag people, add a location, and other sharing options, scroll down to the bottom and click “advanced settings.”
- Here, you’ll have the option to “schedule this post.” You choose the date and time, and voila! You’ve scheduled a post.
Since the feature is currently in testing, not everyone has the option to schedule posts using the app just yet, as Meta previously mentioned. There are several more ways to schedule posts through third-party apps like Planoly, Buffer, and others if you don’t have the option but still want to do so.
