The first addition is the user tagging feature, which enables developers to allow users to tag one or multiple individuals when they publish Reels using the IG Content Publishing API. This feature functions in the same way as tagging users within Instagram’s interfaces. Tagged users will see the published Reel in the tagged tab on their profile and receive a notification.

The second feature is the “Original Audio” rename. With this feature, developers can give users the ability to change the default name of “Original Audio” for any original audio they own when creating a Reel using the Instagram Reels API.

In their commitment to Reels and the Content Publishing API, they have also increased the daily limit for media posts per account. Users can now post up to 50 media items per day across all media types, including Reels, Stories, and Feed posts. This expansion offers users greater flexibility and more opportunities to express themselves.
