Standalone Apps

This is not, nor will be the last standalone app that Instagram will launch. In fact, just months ago the photo-sharing app released IGTV. This is an app that allows users to watch videos longer than 10 minutes, and in full size.

In addition, let’s not forget, Instagram has also been testing Direct as a standalone app since last December. Finally, they also launched Hyperlapse and Boomerang.

Instagram Shopping

Instagram was once known for being an app where you could simply upload photos and add filters. Nowadays, things are way different. Instagram has helped many people grow their businesses and of course to make tons of money.

In order to accomplish this, the photo-sharing app has worked hard and released update after update. In fact, a few months ago they released Instagram shopping. An awesome feature that allows brands to sell their products on Instagram.

Because of the success this feature had, Instagram is now planning to launch an app dedicated exclusively to shopping. Of course, once it is released, it will be much better than the current feature.

Finally, let’s talk about businesses. Currently, there are more than 25 million businesses on Instagram. Out of that number, 2 million of them are advertisers. Therefore, it makes sense that the photo-sharing app is getting ready to launch a standalone app exclusively for shopping.

In fact, launching the app will provide a dedicated home for businesses to sell their services or products. Of course, it goes without saying that Instagram will also generate a staggering revenue thanks to the people using their shopping app.

However, don’t wait until the new app is released. We advise you to learn about the Instagram shopping feature. The more you know about it, the better you will understand the app once it is launched.
