The world of social media never stops evolving, and neither does ZoomSphere.

From now on, you can schedule and publish Instagram Reels from ZoomSphere's Scheduler app! πŸ₯³

There are two ways to publish your Reels in ZoomSphere:

  • Manual via ZoomSphere mobile app

Automatic Publishing

ZoomSphere will automatically publish your Reels at the scheduled time once you approve your Reel with the Approved status.

To auto-publish, your Reels need to be completed. It is not possible to add trendy songs, stickers, mentions, etc., and it also needs to meet the technical requirements set by Instagram.πŸ’‘
