Awesome Hashtag Shortcut Trick for Instagram; Create Instant Hashtag Lists

Always typing out the same bunch of hashtags on Instagram? If you're like me, typing the same "base" group of hashtags out for every post (even with the pre-populated list that appears) can be a bit of a drag. Need a time-saver? Here's a way to add as many hashtags as you like to your caption in a second, using text shortcuts.

Note: This method works for iPhone, but I'd guess there is a  similar function for Android too.

Text Shortcut Instructions

  1. Type your hashtags in Notes, then Select All and Copy.
  2. Go to Settings > General
  3. Scroll to Keyboard Shortcuts, select it, then choose Text Replacement.
  4. Tap the + symbol to create a new shortcut.
  5. Paste in your hashtags in the Phrase box, add the text shortcut you want to use for it to appear later on. Save.
  6. Use the text shortcut in Instagram, which will generate your long hashtag list automatically.
