Instagram is always improving users’ experience with their updates, and here’s some updates. Isn’t it good to be updated what our favourite app developers are doing for us, no matter how big or small?

February has been a great improving month for them as they have introduced really good and exciting features! No doubt that this update may not be as impressive, but it doesnt make them less important!


Let’s get started shall we?

  • Schedule posts

Partnering up with third-party platforms, Hootsuite is now officially a very helpful guide. This new usage is such a helpful function for both businesses and brands. You can simply schedule your posts and then it will post it up directly onto your profile. There’s no need to set alarms and alerts to manually do it now! WOW!

But nonetheless, these functions are considered as premium. Users have to pay to enjoy such perks. But if you’d ask me I would say its a yes because less time spent to keep track of postings are more time to engage and spend time with people/things you love!

  • Monitor performances + Analytics

On top of scheduling, you can even monitor your performances on the application. Well, we do not have  to emphasis on how important analytics are to your social media build!

10 social profiles with 1 user is $19/month, where this is considered a real basic plan. It includes Bulk scheduling, Real-time analytics, Social sweepstakes and Unlimited RSS integrations. Another plan costs $90/month. Well if these plans do not fit your needs well enough, you can always contact them and personalise your own to best suit your expectations!

Well, everyone may already know this, but why not right! Now, you dont have to worry about having a background. Enough of searching for the perfect background before telling people how you feel. You can now type them out with backgrounds provided by instagram, best part of it all is that the backgrounds are customisable to your favourite shade of colours! 🙂

  • Instagram Stories in all sizes and formats

We had enough of extremely zoomed in photos, or taking screenshots of photos before posting them right up! Now, instagram has managed this really well. You can now upload photos of all sizes. Just pinch and you are really good to go!

  • Best part of it all- GIFs

This newly addition to the stories family is really A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! You can now add another interesting element to make your story tell a “story” better! GIFs has got to be the best animations ever created!

  • New Replay Privacy Controls

The revolvement of Stories are really snapchat on Instagram. No doubt that Instagram has always been on Snapchat’s back in ways to improve.

Now this replay privacy control introduced by Instagram proves how they can release features that easily outdo Snapchat. You can now control how many times someone can replay your story/ direct messages you sent.

Instagram has gone to a whole new level. Its the new ‘keep in chat’ privacy option, where this image/video can be available as a thumbnail. Users (influencers) and brands communicating frequently can share private messages with higher flexibility.

We have got previews of many new and upcoming features for stories. Wait for them, and we assure you that many exciting and fun adventures are coming right up. Remember to always keep your Instagram app up to date! Faster access to new features you love with bug fixes 🙂
