๐Ÿ“ธ Automated Instagram Publishing

Following Facebook's Instagram Content Publishing API launch, we are proud to announce that ContentCal now has the ability to auto-publish content to your Instagram feed, significantly simplifying your content publishing workflow.

Whatโ€™s new?

You can now create, plan, and publish all of your single-image and single-video Instagram content through ContentCal, without needing to set up a Zapier integration, or make use of our mobile app.

This means that publishing to Instagram is now just as simple as publishing to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn via ContentCal. ๐ŸŽ‰

*Story posts and multi-image posts can still be published using our mobile app

*Each account is limited to 25 auto-published posts within a 24-hour moving period
