Instagram is letting its users publish a post to multiple accounts at the same time. The feature is currently being made available on Instagram for iOS. As company spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch saying, “We are rolling out this feature to provide a better experience for people who often post to multiple accounts.”
There’s no further detail on the same being made available to Instagram users on Android, but it is definitely likely in future. Currently, users need to switch profiles within the app to post content to their different connected profiles within Instagram app, but after the update, iOS users will get to post the same update on all of their accounts.
As per TechCrunch, the new feature is being called ‘self regram’, which puts a toggle in front of connected accounts, and you’ll be able to enable it from “New Post” page/tab. This feature is in particular helpful for influencers and businesses.
