After testing the ability to post feeds from the desktop browser, Facebook-owned Instagram will now allow users to create posts from its web platform.
The social network is posting updates that will culminate on October 21, when users around the world will be able to post photos and short videos (less than a minute) from their computer browsers, Engadget reports.
This is useful if you’d rather not take your phone out, of course, but it could be especially useful for businesses and enthusiasts who want to make better use of their expensive cameras.
There are also plenty of updates for mobile users, according to the report.
A “Collaborations” test functionality now available allows two people to co-create publications and reels. Users only need to invite someone else from the tagging screen to get them involved.
Both users’ followers will see the post and even share views, likes, and comments. It’s safe to say it could be valuable for everything from superstar teams to sponsored posts, according to the report.
Another test will allow users to launch nonprofit fundraisers directly from the new post button, simplifying charitable efforts.
Everyone will see new music-focused Reels effects on October 21, including Superbeat (rhythm-synced special effects) and Dynamic Lyrics (3D lyrics that follow the track). They aren’t as flashy as the other additions, but can help you focus on sharing content rather than editing it.
