Facebook-owned Instagram will now finally let you create posts from your desktop web browser. As per the official report that a number of updates will be available for the social media platform on the 21st of October, which will allow users across the globe to have the option of posting photos and short videos which is of less than one minute from their computer browser.
This new feature could be useful for businesses and enthusiasts that want to make better use of their expensive cameras.
For mobile users, the collaboration test feature lets two people co-author posts and reels. You have to invite someone else from the tagging screen to get them involved.
Everyone will see new music-driven reels effects on the same day, which includes Dynamic Lyrics (3D lyrics that flow with the track) and Superbeat (special effects in sync with the beat). It can even help you to focus on sharing content rather than editing it.
The report also added that followers for both the users would see the post, and it will even share likes, views and comments. It could be used for everything from superstar team-ups to sponsored posts. It also says that another test will be coming on the 20th of October and will let you start non-profit fundraisers right from the new post button by just simplifying charity efforts.
The company has also recently rolled out an option that allows users to cross-post their Facebook updates that include videos or photos over to their Instagram. Facebook already allows users to cross-post their Instagram Stories and Reels to Facebook.
The global test is, as of now, only available to a small group of people who already have their Facebook profiles linked to the creator, personal or business account on Instagram.
