Instagram Gifts is a brand-new tool that allows users to send monetary gifts to their favourite producers. Using Stars, users can buy these presents from inside the Instagram app, making it easy to send their fave producers some love. With this updated function, artists may deepen their relationships with their followers and find new ways to earn money from their work.
“Instagram users may buy stars and give them to you as presents. Each month, Instagram will give you $.01 for every star you’ve accumulated from your followers as a revenue split from your Reels that have received presents.
Instagram’s Gifts function, which enables users to give virtual presents to their favourite content producers, will soon be available in India. Furthermore, in the next weeks, the firm will deliver improvements to its Reels editor all around the world. Users all across the globe will have access to improved editing tools and more creative freedom with these upcoming enhancements.
Instagram’s Reels editor has been updated with additional tools that expand users’ scope for originality. The ‘Split’ function is one example; it enables viewers to easily split a video in half. In addition, the ‘Speed’ option now allows users to change the tempo of their videos, either accelerating or decelerating the playback. In addition, the ‘Replace’ option lets users switch out a video while preserving the rest of the reel’s settings, including the time and the sequence of the clips. By giving users more leeway and power throughout the editing process, these enhancements will hopefully lead to even more interesting and exciting videos being uploaded to Reels.
Instagram now supports GIF comments across the board in both posts and Reels. Users may now enhance their comments with moving GIFs, making for more personal and interesting discussions. This upgrade improves the expressive and engaging potential of comments, allowing users to inject some lightheartedness and individuality into their discussions.
