Meta-owned Instagram is testing the ability to schedule posts and reels in the mobile app up to 75 days in advance. Here we have scripted the critical information you should know about.

It’s finally coming…

The wait is over for Instagram creators about scheduling the post and reels from the app itself.

Until now, creators are using outward tools to schedule posts on Instagram. Hootsuite is the dominant software in this realm.

With a new feature update, the app will let users schedule their posts, video, and reels up to 75 days in advance.

The only caveat is necessary, you should have a professional Instagram account to schedule posts on this platform. If you use Instagram for business, you’re well-positioned to leap to the benefit of a new feature.

However, upgrading from a standard account to a professional is completely free and simple. So, if you haven’t done it yet, it’s the best time.

According to the “Creators” – official profile of the community, they released a note saying “You’ve been asking for it and we’ve listened! We’re rolling out content scheduling tools right in the Instagram app” along with snippets of walkthrough how it works and a new update feature ‘achievement’ to reward creators for their impressive efforts.

Let’s learn how creators can use the new ‘Schedule post on Instagram’ feature in the app.

The new feature update rolling out to Instagram will help creators avoid using third-party schedulers or desktop solutions like Meta Business Suite.

With that note, creators, right from the interface, could be able to schedule post relatively coming periods but not more than 75 days.

Here’s a breakdown of the steps for scheduling Instagram posts in the app.

Step 1 – Create the desired post and select it in the app to upload.

Step 2 – Before sharing the post, tap on the “Advance setting” option to access the scheduling tool.

Step 3 – Upon tapping, you will ask to select a time and date to go live on their feed.

Step 4 – Simply, navigate back to the Instagram post interface.

Step 5 – Tap on the “Schedule‘ button to enable the action.

To use the best of this feature, it is advised creators post consistently during the prime engagement period.

Jumping on to the next minor update “Achievements” creators will get something for performing extraordinarily in their content. It is deployed to celebrate the effort that creators put into their reels, for entertainment and information, to encourage their followers.

The achievements coming with the updates can be unlocked by taking specific actions when creating a reel such as:

  • Collaborating with another creator
  • Engaging with their community more interactively
  • Joining the conversation by using the hit-signature audio or effects

In the end

The update will soon be rolled out. Keep checking the store marketplace for notifications of updates.
