What’s New in Smash Balloon

We’ve added lots of helpful features in the last 12 months. Let’s talk about our favorites below:

Feeds for YouTube Pro Plugin

We wanted an easy way for our users to create and display completely customizable YouTube feeds on their websites, so we launched the Feeds for YouTube Pro plugin.

It’s a great way to get more YouTube subscribers, boost user engagement and even make more sales by posting video testimonials on your WordPress — no coding needed.

Support for Facebook and Instagram oEmbeds

Not-so-good news? WordPress removed their support for Facebook and Instagram oEmbeds.

So when you share a link to a Facebook post or Instagram video in WordPress, it won’t be automatically embedded for you.

Good news? With the help of Custom Facebook Feed Pro and Instagram Feed Pro, your existing and future Facebook and Instagram oEmbeds will keep working.

You can still use your social media content to establish brand awareness and encourage your site visitors to engage with you.

Social Media Blocks

Using the block editor? With our social media blocks, you can add your social feeds right into the visual editor with just a few clicks.

No need for you to deal with confusing code or anything complicated. Just click on the social block and it’ll be automatically added for you.

Support for IGTV Videos

Do you have Instagram TV (IGTV) videos? Now you can easily use our Instagram feed plugins to help you show IGTV posts on your website.

This added feature lets you display your IGTV videos together with other Instagram posts on your feed, so you can dominate Instagram video marketing.

Social Wall Pro Plugin

Ever wanted to combine your social media feeds in one place?

Our newest plugin, Social Wall Pro, lets you show your feeds from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram into a single wall — even if you’re not tech-savvy.

Now, you can save lots of time and effort while you boost your followers in all 4 platforms and take your business to the top.

What’s Next for Smash Balloon

We’re so proud of what the team has accomplished in the last year, but there’s still so much more to come.

Thanks to your helpful user feedback, we’re working on lots of really cool features and enhancements for ALL Smash Balloon plugins. Here’s a quick preview of what’s coming next:

  • Easier Feed Creation — Go through a guided flow to select your feed type, connect your social account and create your feed seamlessly.
