Instagram Updates You Should Know

Instagram made a few updates this month and they’re big ones.

And because our goal is to keep you sharp, here they are:

  • Augmented Reality: While AR is still trying to find its place, the benefits will likely be huge for marketers. Whether you’re wanting to see how a new lipstick looks or new furniture in your living room, AR is going to change the buying process for sure. Instagram is testing an on-platform AR shopping feature with select advertisers 🙌🏼. The release date is TBD.
  • Direct Messaging App “Threads” Is Released: Stories meets DM in this standalone direct messaging app called Threads. “Right now, Threads is extremely user-focused.” The interaction for businesses will likely come sooner than later. #Monetize.
  • Set Reminders for Product Launches: If you’re in E-commerce, this is great news. This new feature allows “businesses using the shopping platform to learn about and preview products that aren’t even officially for sale yet.” What’s really cool is that you can add a sticker to your story which will indicate your launch date. Potential customers can then set a reminder with a click of a button (directly from the story).

And now you know. 🤘🏼
