In addition, Instagram is dropping a few other features starting with ‘Collabs’ that are coming this week. The social platform describing it as a ‘test’ is said to allow “people to co-author both Feed posts and Reels.” TechCrunch explains that to use the feature “users can invite another account to be collaborator from the tagging screen on Instagram.”

The company will begin testing a way to create fundraisers for nonprofits too. One can start a fundraiser directly from the plus button. You will be able to select a nonprofit organization and add the fundraiser to your Feed post. Reels are getting few add-ons that will enhance user experience with music. “On Thursday, Instagram will introduce two new effects called Superbeat and Dynamic Lyrics, which will help creators who edit and perform using music on Reels. Superbeat will intelligently apply special effects to music to the beat of the user’s song while Dynamic Lyrics will display 3D lyrics that will flow with the song’s groove,” says Instagram (quoted via TechCrunch).

As mentioned, these features will be rolling out to the public starting tomorrow. To recall, Instagram recently dropped its IGTV brand for long-format videos although one can still put up videos of up to 60 minutes.
