Instagram is the most popular photo-sharing app that has 130 million monthly users. And these users have shared more than 16 billion photos to date.
On Thursday, June 20, Instagram’s co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom introduced a new feature on Instagram called, “Video On Instagram”.
The new Instagram video feature will let you record 15-second videos and share it with your friends. It also has editing capabilities and 13 custom filters, specially designed for Instagram videos.
“It’s everything we know and love about Instagram, but it moves,” Systrom said.
Instagram users can also choose a cover photo for videos, to make streams more attractive.
This new Instagram video feature is available to all Android and iOS users as a free update to the existing instagram app that you are using.
According to Systrom, the 15-second recording is OK, not so small and not so long. And for now, there is no way to add video from your phone, you can only record videos from within Instagram app.
Instagram is already the largest photo-sharing app and it added another feature. This new feature gave a tough competition to Vine and gave another big reason for people to love Instagram.
