It's slightly different to normal posting so let's set you up for success!

  1. Download Hopper HQ's brand new app (iOS and Android)

  2. Plan and schedule your Instagram Reels

  3. Publish using the app

  4. Can I autopost Instagram Reels?


Download our brand new app! Hopper HQ Mobile Companion:

Google Play Store ⬇️

Apple App Store ⬇️

Instagram Reels will be published using push notifications from this app.

This means when your scheduled publishing time arrives, you'll receive a notification from the app, click click click, and viola! Reel published! 🎉


Plan and schedule your Instagram Reels

  1. Click 'Create'

  2. Click 'Reel'

  3. Create the Reel

    1. Add Video

    2. Set publishing time

    3. Add posting notes - these are the place to note if you'll be adding any Instagram elements to the Reel when posting, i.e. filters, stickers, text...

    4. Select which Instagram account(s) the Reel will be published to

  4. Click Save!

The post will be Saved in the brand new Reels tab ✨ Where, like normal, you'll be able to view your scheduled and draft Reels.

The view is similar in the mobile app 😉


Publish using the app

When it's the scheduled publishing time, you'll receive a push notification through the app guiding you to publish your Instagram Reel.

⚠️ Instagram Reels will not autopost! ⚠️

  1. Click into the Reel icon in the app

  2. Click 'Manually Post', this will open Instagram

  3. Create a Reel like usual in Instagram and see your Reel media top of your gallery.

  4. Head back to the app and press 'Mark as published'.


Can I autopost Instagram Reels?

No...

At the moment, the only official method (to prevent the risk of account safety) is to post using reminders.

Once this is available through official Instagram methods, we will be quick to develop this.

In order to schedule Instagram Reels using Hopper HQ, please download our brand new mobile app. When your scheduled time arrives, we'll send you a reminder so you can upload your Reel to Instagram and make sure it's perfect.
