How to Schedule Posts & Reels in The Instagram App

Instagram users who operate business accounts can now schedule posts and Reels up to 75 days ahead directly from their mobile devices. Previously, this required third-party tools or desktop solutions like Meta Business Suite. This update simplifies scheduling, making it accessible through the iOS or Android app.

The only requirement is having a professional account. If you use Instagram for business, you probably already have one. If not, upgrading from a standard account is simple and free. Now, let’s delve into utilizing Instagram’s post scheduling feature.
