Meta is pushing a new form to add and switch between your accounts on Instagram and Facebook by incorporating its Accounts Center into the apps.
The features should assist in making things easier for anyone who regularly bounces between various accounts on the two apps or who has many Instagram profiles to split their Online Brand, personal life, and business.
In addition, testing features should make things easier for people who use Instagram with various accounts.
The new account switcher for FB and Insta will show you all the accounts and profiles you’ve counted to the Accounts Center.
While Instagram has let you switch between various profiles for years, the new system allows you to throw Facebook accounts in the mix, making it more manageable to jump over to Facebook if you require something on that app.
It’ll also show you some details about notifications for each account. So, for instance, if you’re browsing your account, the switcher will offer you if there are comments or other notifications to check out on your other accounts.
The new switcher is being tested globally for people using iPhones, Android phones, and even the web version of Instagram.
Meta representative Emil Vazquez said that the company wouldn’t share specific numbers on how many people have access to the update but said: “it’ll continue to expand in availability in the coming months.”
On iOS and Android, Meta says it’s also testing a new account and profile creation flow, making it more effortless to set up new accounts and profiles and begin using Instagram if you already use Facebook.
Meta has been working on intertwining its accounts for a while now; for its VR hardware, it even created an overarching “Meta account” to which you can attach Instagram and Facebook profiles.
These tests aren’t exactly bringing the same system to more widespread products like FB and Insta, but it is the same philosophy of being able to hold all your Meta accounts and profiles live in one place.
