Instagram is currently testing a new feature that allows users to preview how a post will look before publishing it. This grid feature is being tested with a small number of users who have the latest version of the app.
Previously, users had to use third-party apps to achieve this level of control over their Instagram grid. With this new feature, users can ensure that each post seamlessly blends into their overall grid aesthetic. The feature has been seen by some users who were randomly chosen for an A/B test, as reported by Pocket-lint.
In the test, users are given the option to “Show Preview” before finalizing their post. This tool gives users the ability to see how their post will look within the grid before it is published.
This feature is beneficial for brands, influencers, and everyday users. It allows businesses to align their branded content with their visual identity, influencers to create cohesive feeds that resonate with their audience, and individual users to achieve the coveted “Instagram-worthy” grid without frustration.
However, not all users may have immediate access to this feature, as Instagram often rolls out new features gradually. In the meantime, users can utilize third-party grid planning apps to achieve similar results.
There is no official announcement or timeline for the widespread availability of this feature. Based on past update patterns, it is speculated that the full rollout could occur within the next few app updates while the A/B test progresses. Until then, Instagram users can look forward to the grid preview feature with excitement.
