  • Videos for ads in Instagram Stories must be 9:16 or taller. If images are taller than 9:16, Instagram only shows the center section. If an image or video is shorter than 9:16, when you create ad creative, it fails. The minimum image or video resolution is 600x1067px.
  • You cannot use image crop specs with ads in Instagram Stories, so you cannot have a 1080x1080px image and use an image crop spec to get 600x1067px.
  • Video cannot be longer than 15 seconds less than the limit of 60 seconds for Instagram Stream. Video size should be 2.3 GB max

  • As ads in Instagram Stories only show the advertiser's Instagram account name and profile picture, you cannot set all other visible fields, including message, title, link, caption, CTA button, and so on.
  • Tapping on an Instagram stories ad will open the next story.
  • Posts and post-moderation are not available in Instagram stories which are not posts open to like or comment.
