Important Instragram Updates
Instagram has recently made two changes which are likely to make a big difference to users.
Firstly, you can now log in to your account and post to Instagram directly from your computer so Instagram is no-longer mobile-only.
The second change is that now everyone can add links in Stories. This used to be something only available on verified accounts or those with a given number of followers but is now being rolled out everywhere.
To add links to your Stories, you need to use the Link sticker to add a link to your Insta story. When someone taps on the sticker, they’ll be able to follow the link.
To add a Link sticker:
- Capture or upload content to your story
- Select the sticker tool from the top navigation bar
- Tap the “Link” sticker to add your desired link and tap “Done”
- Place the sticker on your story — like our other stickers — and tap on the sticker to see colour variations.
Don’t panic if these changes don’t seem to have been applied to your account yet. They are being added to accounts in batches so you’ll get the features very soon if not already.
