What you can do with the Textline-Instagram integration

  • Sync your Instagram Business Account with your Textline inbox.
  • View and respond to all your Instagram messages, story mentions, and story replies right in Textline.
  • Increase your response rate.
All I can say is that we have more people responding to texts who would have taken longer to make contact with. We have noticed the difference.
