Instagram is updating its Feed and Reels with a slew of new features. The Collabs function is being tested by the Facebook-owned photo-sharing site in order to enhance the interaction between content providers. Users on the site may now collaborate on Feed posts and Reels with others thanks to a new feature. Both creator names will show in the header of the shared content, and both groups of followers will view the same post or Reel.
It will receive the same number of likes and comments. According to a source, Instagram for desktop is now allowing users to upload new images and videos. Reels will also get new music-focused effects, according to reports. The Collabs feature is now available, and more new features are expected to arrive in the following days. Collabs, which Instagram launched on October 20, allow two users to share the same material. A user may now invite another account to collaborate on a post or reel from the tagging screen.
Both accounts will appear in the post or Reels header after the second profile accepts it, and it will be shared with both groups of followers. It will be shown on both profile grids, and both users would be able to express their thoughts, likes, and comments on it. Facebook's Head of Metaverse Vishal Shah tweeted that the new feature is currently being tested, but he didn't say when the worldwide deployment will begin. Following a short test in June, Instagram is allegedly enabling functionality for users to submit images and videos from desktop browsers on Thursday.
Photos and movies (less than 60 seconds long) may be submitted from the desktop, according to a TechCrunch article. Instagram will also begin testing a tool that allows users to raise money for a nonprofit of their choice, according to the source. When the functionality goes live, users may publish using the 'Fundraiser' option from the 'Create' menu. According to the article, the app would also have two music-related features dubbed Superbeat and Dynamic Lyrics. Superbeat may be used to provide extraordinary effects to music based on the user's song's beat, and Dynamic Lyrics can show 3D lyrics throughout a video.
