Instagram Integration with Rasa

Hey, I am unable to connect my bot to Instagram. Is there anyway to integrate the rasa bot to instagram

Hi @afnaan. It looks like instagram has an API for messaging now, but it is just being rolled out:

We are currently in phase 1 of the global rollout of the Instagram Messaging. Instagram accounts with follower count over 10K and under 100K are able to connect to the API. We plan to expand to accounts with between 1K and 100K followers for the next phase in July and include remaining accounts for the last phase by end of Q3. Please check this page for updates and details of the onboarding steps here.

If you have access, you can create a custom channel connector similar to how it is described here. If you end up creating it, this could be an interesting open source contribution, that we might incorporate into Rasa Open Source and maintain with the other channel connectors
