Instagram is a platform that is all about posting content. So, it has always been amazing that the photo-focused social media platform does not have a feature to schedule posts. It seems such a “duh” tool to include that it is understandable users have been requesting it for years. Meta is finally correcting this feature gap by adding the ability to schedule posts on Instagram.

However, this is just in the realm of rumor at the moment. Furthermore, it also seems the app will receive a reels feature in the near future too.

Twitter leaker @WFBrother posted a screenshot showing the feature working. In response, a Meta statement confirmed testing of post-scheduling is currently underway with a subset of users around the world:

“We are testing the ability to schedule content with a percentage of our global community,” the social media giant says. However, the company formally known as Facebook is not saying when the ability will become widely available.

From the content provided by @WFBrothter, it seems creating a new post or reel in Instagram will come with the ability to schedule posts through Advanced Settings. Here there will be an option “Schedule this post” where users can set a date and time for when the post will go live. This schedule can be edited later if necessary.

WhatsApp Safety

In other Meta news, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has recently told users that WhatsApp is more private and secure than Apple’s iMessage.

Zuckerberg points out in a Facebook post that WhatsApp encrypts all messages no matter the platform. While iMessage encrypts messages on iOS, it converts messages to non-encrypted SMS when sending them to Android devices.
