Automate a bot to watch Instagram stories on your behalf, and mark thousands of stories viewed. Get noticed by your fans, and grow your brand!

Why would you automate viewing Instagram stories?

We all check for who watched our stories. It’s human, we’re curious to know who’s watching us.

Setting up an Instagram Story viewer bot is made to give your audience that dopamine hit, without having to actually watch the stories.

Most users of this automation are Instagram professionals, either brands, or influencers, that want to create a connection with their audience.

To get started, make a list of people that you want to interact with. Do it by exporting your own followers (or those of your competitors), or people interested in a specific hashtag, and plug them to this automation.

Running the Instagram Story viewer bot a few minutes a day is part of these little automations that significantly improve the results of your social media efforts.

How do I add a new profile?

To connect your Instagram profile and perform this automation, you must:

Why would I use Google Sheets?

When you want to export multiple targets without having to change the #2 field every time, you can use a Google spreadsheet URL instead.

To do this, simply put every target URLs you want to target in the first column of the sheet like so:

Then make your Google sheet public. Without it, TexAu won’t be able to access it.

How to schedule my automation to launch multiples times?

Automation is not always welcomed. To avoid being suspended, prefer making many small launches over one big launch.

How to download your results?

After you launch your automation, you’ll see TexAu performing its job in the log section. It will look something like that:

Once the launch is over, click “Download CSV” to download your data to a .CSV spreadsheet.

Download your results by clicking “Download CSV”.
