You can now schedule posts within the Instagram app

At long last, you can now schedule your Instagram posts within the app itself. This adds a level of convenience by allowing users to set a specific publication date for their posts. However, the feature doesn’t allow cross-posting to other IG accounts or different social media platforms.

To schedule your Instagram post within the IG app, go to Advanced Settings while creating your post, click on Schedule, and set the desired publication time.

The feature is currently being rolled out and should be available for everybody soon ?

Social media managers and creators have long relied on third-party tools to schedule posts on Instagram. But now the company is testing an in-app tool to schedule posts and reels.

The company confirmed the development and said it is indeed experimenting with this. “We are testing the ability to schedule content with a percentage of our global community,” a Meta spokesperson said in a statement. The company didn’t provide any detail about the feature’s general availability.

Twitter user @WFBrother posted a screenshot showing how it works. Users who have this feature can go to Advanced Settings while creating a new post or a reel and turn on the toggle for “Schedule this post” to select a time and a date. They also noted that you can see scheduled posts through the “Scheduled Content” section accessible under the hamburger menu. The section also lets you reschedule content if needed.
