Getting started with channels has never been easier! As soon as you have access, simply launch a channel from your Instagram inbox.
Your first message will prompt your followers with a one-time notification to join in on the fun.
Keep the momentum going by encouraging your followers to join your channel through the use of the ‘join channel’ sticker in Stories.
And, coming soon, you’ll have the option to even pin your channel right on your profile for easy access.
Broadcast channels are open for all to discover and view, but the real magic happens when you become a follower.
By joining a channel, you’ll receive notifications every time the creator has an update to share.
And don’t worry; you’re always in control – you can choose to leave or mute a channel at any time and manage your notifications from creators as you see fit.
The initial test group for broadcast channels is made up of some of the most talented and creative individuals in the social media world.
All pioneers in this exciting new way to engage with their followers!
