Any Instagram Feed asset can now be transformed into a full screen stories ad
Creating native, immersive Instagram Stories ads just got simpler. Now advertisers can easily get started by leverage existing creative, saving time and effort.
When a business uploads a single photo or a video under 15 seconds within Instagram Feed aspect ratios, Instagram will automatically provide full screen support for this content on Instagram Stories. Whether exclusively or across multiple placements, advertisers can seamlessly reach people across Instagram and Facebook.
The ad creative will get carried over to stories, and our pixel matching technology will automatically select a background gradient to turn the ad into a full screen format.
If the ad creative is square or landscape, the text from the Instagram Feed or Facebook Feed unit will be added in stories text font to the bottom of the ad.
