Instagram will have a number of new features, including the long-awaited ability to publish posts from the desktop. About it announced application developers on the company’s Twitter account.
So, from October 19, users can publish so-called “collaborations” – joint publications to increase coverage, the title of which contains the names of both authors and which are displayed in both feeds. Comments, views and likes for such posts will also be shared. While the feature is in test mode, Instagram already tested the feature around the world in July.
On Wednesday, October 20, the app will have a feature for non-profit organizations that will allow them to conduct charitable fundraisers. To do this, on the main page of the user account, a corresponding option will be added to the post creation menu (the “+” button).
Starting Thursday, October 21, all users will be able to post photos and videos no longer than a minute from a computer on any platform. Previously, this could only be done from a smartphone. Also from Thursday, new features will be added to the Reels short video section, including 3D lyrics and special effects.
Previously, Instagram had the ability to post videos up to 60 minutes in the main feed. Previously, a separate IGTV section was intended for this, which has been renamed to Instagram TV.
