Buffer and Instagram have finally granted maybe a few million wishes by working together and making it possible for users to schedule a post on Instagram.
Instagram was the elusive one as all other major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest had already allowed users to schedule a post beforehand.
Buffer is a blessing for businesses and other users who were keen on connecting with their followers by posting at regular intervals and not being hindered by unavailable access to a device.
Although Instagram still hasn’t relaxed their restrictions for third-party apps for posting pictures, it will now let users pre-write a post through Buffer and will provide a preview.
When the scheduled time for a desired post arrives, Buffer will prompt the user in the form of a push notification. Clicking on it will take the user to Instagram and will copy the pre-written caption to Instagram.
Buffer has also offered a cherry on top by offering analytics which will showcase the details such as the number of likes and comments on a post and they also offer an advanced analytics option that will include follower details such as growth and other engagement statistics.
The new feature will be available in the form of an app update on the iOS and Android platforms and will be available to all Buffer plans including the free plans although they won’t be able to access multiple accounts, which will only be available to paid users.
The new update will be available starting today and is definitely a step in the right direction.
