Instagram has an “on this day” feature that shows a post you shared on the same date last year. You can also look at posts made on this date in other years.
You can share these posts as part of your Instagram story or as a direct message. Using this feature, you can also see who followed you and who you followed on this date. Users want this feature because they like to share and look at old content.
The “on this day” feature is a little hard to find in the Instagram app, but it’s not that hard. Simply selecting the Create button will grant access to this functionality for you. This feature can make a new post/story or send a direct message. So, let’s learn how to use this Instagram app feature. If you don’t already have the Instagram app on your phone, you’ll need to do that before moving on. Depending on your device, you can download Instagram from Google Play or Apple App Store.
Once you have the Instagram app on your phone, you need to open it. Now, on the app screen, you need to swipe right. This should take you to the Instagram app’s camera. Next, depending on your menu, you need to go to the “Create” menu. To get to the “create” menu, you must slide left or right on the bottom menu bar. When you’re in the Create menu, its options appear just above the menu bar. Now, you can get to the “on this day” option by swiping left or right. As you swipe, the name of the current option will show up in the bar at the bottom. So, when you see “on this day” in the bar at the bottom, stop swiping because you’ve reached the feature.
You should know that this feature will only appear on dates you posted on Instagram the year before.
You can use the “on this day” feature’s options to change the background color of the post or switch it to another post made on the same date but in a different year. You can use these old posts to make a new post with the help of this change. You can also choose which of these old posts you want to re-post. You could also post more than one of these old comments. To make a post based on an old one, you must go through the same steps again.
After you’ve changed the post, tap the “on this day” icon at the bottom of the app screen to make it. This icon will look like a clock face with an arrow going counterclockwise around it. If you tap this icon, the earlier post you chose will take you to the next step in making the post. Here, you can use this post in several ways to make a new post. The post can have stickers, text, links, and other things. Here you can also change the background color. of the backdrop in this section. When you’re done, tap “share with” to send it to your Instagram followers.
