Instagram feed videos and IGTV were combined into the Instagram Video format. You can read more about it on the Instagram blog post – Video investment on Instagram. We do support Instagram Videos in our widgets!
IGTV in Instagram widget
We do support the IGTV posts from Instagram in our widgets. IGTV will look like the regular video post in our widgets. Each post has a triangle play icon overlay. It can also be played in the lightbox gallery.
Instagram Reels in the Instagram feed
Instagram Reels are visible in users’ feeds on Instagram App and on the Instagram website for some time. Unfortunately, they are not yet visible in our widgets.
We are using official Instagram APIs – Instagram Graph API and Instagram Basic Display API to provide our services. Neither the Graph API nor the Basic Display API returns information about Reels. Here is the quote from the Instagram API documentation:
Reels are not supported
Since the information about such posts is missing, they can’t be included in our widgets😩 We hope that Instagram/Facebook will add support for Reels in the near future.
Will you add support for Reels in the future?
If the data about Reels will be available in the responses from official APIs, we will add support for such posts to our widgets!
