Phase 3: Final Rollout!

Instagram has just announced that Instagram Automation is now available to all Business accounts on Instagram.

While in Phase 2 there was a follower count restriction which required accounts to have between 1k – 100k followers. Accounts with more or less than this weren’t eligible to use automation on Instagram.

As of today (Aug 17th, 2021) this rule has been lifted and now all business accounts are able to use Instagram Automation on their profiles.

Messenger API for Instagram opened up to all developers in June, with an opportunity to build for IG business accounts with follower counts between 10k-100k. Now, developers can add Instagram messaging into their apps and build Instagram messaging experiences for all businesses on Instagram.
