Instagram Launching Product Tagging Feature for Users In US. What About Other Countries?
Instagram has apparently made the product-tagging function available to all users in the United States. Previously, the feature was only available to creators and business accounts on Instagram. The functionality will likely become more widely available in the coming months. Instagram added a tool last week that allows users to add a moderator to live stories. The photo-sharing app also included auto-generated subtitles for videos in feeds earlier this month.
Instagram has progressively transitioned toward selling things directly from within the app over several years. The latest upgrade may make it easier for users to recognise products displayed in photographs, videos, and stories. This new feature is likely to begin rolling out to customers in other world regions in the coming months.
How Will It Work?
To use the product tagging feature in Instagram follow the below-mentioned steps:
1. Users must first publish a post to tag a product on Instagram.
2. After finishing updating the post, move on to the next page
3. Users will see Tag items from here, where they can tap the product in their post and then search for that brand’s effect to add a tag.
4. Other users will be able to see the product tags in the post and may touch them to buy.
Recent Updates in the Platform
Last week, Instagram announced the addition of a new function that allows users to add a moderator to a live story. Creators may now appoint moderators throughout their streams, a long-awaited feature. A moderator of an Instagram live feed will be able to report remarks and remove viewers from the stream. They can also disable comments for a particular viewer. Previously, only the individual who launched the live on social media could control it.
The Meta-owned firm also introduced auto-generated subtitles for movies in users’ feeds earlier this month. Instagram’s automatic captions will be enabled by default for the platform’s developers. Previously, content producers had to manually add subtitles to their movies, which was time-consuming and laborious. The addition of automatic captions streamlines the process while making Instagram more accessible to hearing-impaired users.
Meanwhile, Instagram revealed earlier this month that it will be rolling out a function that would allow users to remove material in masse. The tool is being pushed out to make it easier for Instagram users to delete comments, posts, and other activity in bulk. Meta, previously known as Facebook offered the functionality as part of its Safer Internet Day activities.
