This is very very nessecary.
As Iam not able to schedule any kind of Carousel post or video through publer to IG

Also being able to post a short (under 60 second) video would be super helpful so I don’t have to do them separeately through Creator Studio

This would also be very useful, the closer functionality we can get to the IG app makes using publer a tool worth using, if you can only use it for half of the time then you start question the long term viability.

On hold due to API limitations.

This can only happen with a mobile app because of Instagram API limitations. The API simply doesn’t allow it.

Hey,
Can you figure out, how’s hootsuite able to provide this functionality ?

They simply send you a push notification / reminder. They don’t post them automatically for you.

We will be able to offer this once we have the mobile apps #4

defo need this!! Have to start thinking about using FB Creator Studio when I need to post more than one image. Would be better if we could do it from within publer.

We primarily use desktop, but perhaps you could handoff/push carousels from desktop to the mobile app for a simple ‘Complete Post?’ prompt? Something to think about for the dev cycle.

I recently tested the ‘Social Poster’ Web App on my desktop and Instagram Carousel Posts are enabled and worked fine on this App. So, don’t understand why Publer can’t use the same API, but maybe it is a very recent development…

Is this ready to go yet?

Later, Hootsuite, Flume, Iconosquare, Hopper, and are able to post carousels (although a few send a push notification to do it at a scheduled time), why isn’t Publer able to do it yet?

Hi Wendy,

We will be able to offer this once we have the mobile apps #4.

We’re using Instagram’s official API and for the moment they only support single photo and video posts.

Does this mean we will need to publish carousels through a mobile app? Or, does it mean that once you have a mobile app you will be able to leverage a specific API that you do not currently have? This isn’t very clear from your response. Please dive a bit deeper so we understand what specific functionality will be coming, and if it will be applicable to the full, browser-based version of the software. Thanks!

Hello,

Instagram API, how we communicate with Instagram, only support single photo & video posts. At the moment speaking they don’t have any plans to support carousels and stories.

What Later, Hootsuite etc do is send you a reminder / push notification on your phone (if you download their mobile app) for the posts that cannot be supported automatically via their API. It’s a semi-automatic solution as you have to click the notification (which will take you to Instagram) and publish the post/story.

This is the same solution that we will offer once we have the mobile app.
