Instagram: How to Search for Posts Using Keywords

Find content in different ways

The feature began rolling out in English in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S. Instagram

Instagram introduced the ability earlier this week for users to search for content based on keywords. Our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the search bar at the top of the screen.

Step 3: Type the keyword you wish to search for.

Step 4: Tap the desired keyword in the search results that appear.

This will show you a feed of content related to the keyword you’ve chosen, and you can tap even more keywords at the top of the screen to view related content.
