Discord, besides being a platform for community communication, also allows users to receive notifications from various social media platforms through third-party bots. This enables all members of Discord servers to stay updated with the latest information. This article will explain how to use the MEE6 bot to receive notifications for posts from a specific Instagram account.
Introduction to MEE6 Bot
MEE6 is a versatile bot on Discord that offers over 30 plugins. Users can choose which plugins to enable based on their needs. Some plugins are available for free members, but there may be certain limitations in terms of functionality, requiring an upgrade to a premium membership for full access. Some plugins are exclusive to premium members.

Receiving Instagram post notifications, as described in this article, is one of the premium features.
Tutorial on Setting up Instagram Post Notifications
Step 1: Invite MEE6 to your Discord server
First, visit the MEE6 website and invite the bot to your server. The invitation process for bots is the same for all, but it’s important to note that your Discord account needs to have “Manage Server” or “Administrator” permissions for that server in order to invite the bot. Otherwise, you won’t be able to send an invitation.
Additionally, before inviting the bot, make sure you are logged in to your Discord account. If you are not logged in yet, the system will redirect you to the Discord login interface.

Step 2: Setting up Instagram post notification
Before proceeding with the setup, it’s important to note the following two points to avoid any error messages:
- Make sure you’re not using any VPN software.
- Make sure you’re not using any ad-blocking plugins.
Step 3: Enable Instagram Alerts plugin
After successfully inviting the MEE6 bot to your server, go to the MEE6 website backend and enable the “Instagram Alerts” plugin. To disable this plugin later, you can use the same method to turn off Instagram Alerts.

Step 4: Configure Instagram Alerts
Next, you will enter the settings page for Instagram Alerts. Click on “New Instagram account” to set up tracking for a new Instagram account.
Configure Tracking for a New Instagram Account
There are three options to configure in the notification settings:
Option 1 – Instagram(Account): Enter the Instagram account for which you want to receive notifications. The system will display search results, and you need to select the correct account from the options presented.
Option 2 – Message: Set the text message to be included in the post notification. You can also specify user roles to be tagged (using “@” before the role name) or channels to be mentioned (using “#” before the channel name).
Option 3 – Post in channel: Choose the Discord channel where you want to see the notifications for the latest posts. If you created a new Discord channel while having the MEE6 web dashboard open, remember to refresh the page (press F5) or wait a few minutes before trying again. This ensures that the newly created Discord channel appears in the options.
Box 4 – Save & Close: After configuring all three options, click “Save & Close” in the top-right corner of the screen to complete the setup.
