Instagram is going to launch a subscriptions feature that would let creators profit from their work on the site. Users may have to pay to watch articles or access other content or media from creators on the Facebook app once creator subscriptions are rolled out.
In the US, Instagram’s Apple App Store listing now includes a subscriptions category under the in-app purchases area, implying that the paid function will be available to more people. On Twitter, some users reported that the new in-app purchase option was also available in the United Kingdom.
In the United States, the Instagram app for iOS has been upgraded with new in-app purchases called Instagram Subscriptions, which cost $0.99 to $4.99. Badges are presented alongside the new subscription details.
According to the TechCrunch report, which cites analytic firm Sensor Tower, the first Instagram Subscriptions in-app purchase was added to Instagram’s US App Store listing on November 1 for $4.99. It was announced on November 3 that a $0.99 in-app purchase will be available. The new subscription plans are also available in the UK App Store.
Has Instagram Officially Confirmed It?
The launch of these in-app purchases has yet to be officially acknowledged by Instagram. Influencers and content creators on the photo-sharing app may be able to sell access to exclusive content as a result of the move.
