Instagram adds collaborative posts | Digital Trends Spanish

Instagram is adding some new features to the platform, with which users will be able to collaborative posts, raise funds, and upload content from devices other than a phone.

The first of these new features is called Collabs and as the name suggests, it allows two users to collaborate and share authorship of a post or a reel. The mechanism for collaborations is simple: one user publishes and invites another to join; if he accepts, the same publication will appear in the feed of each of them and will be seen by the followers of both.

In collaborative posts, comments, reactions and of course, comments are shared. likes. From Instagram they indicate that this feature is for now a test and that it is not available to everyone yet.

During this same week, an option will also be launched within the creation menu for publications that seek to raise funds for a non-profit organization. In the same application, a list of organizations will be shown to which the money collected will be delivered directly.

Another function that is added globally is to publish videos or images directly from a computer, without going through the phone. Until now, Instagram has only allowed content to be viewed, but not published (with a small exception when using developer mode), but that will change soon and the desktop experience will be much more complete.

Along with these additions, there are also some new features for the stories that will allow you to add 3D lyrics to the videos or add effects that move to the rhythm of the music that sounds.
