Just when you think Facebook-owned app Instagram couldn't get any cooler, it releases its new feature called IGTV. This new video feature is a place for vertical, long form videos on Instagram, and it’s available in both the native Instagram app and the new standalone IGTV app (which both Android and iPhone users can now download.)
Instagram has already encouraged all of us to start capturing videos using only our phones (no fancy camera tricks for most) when it introduced Instagram Stories, so it just makes sense that anyone on Instagram can now create their own "channel" where followers can view videos longer than 60 seconds.
For most channels and users, a 10-minute video can be uploaded, while some larger accounts that have been verified can upload up to an hour-long video. The good news is that, according to Instagram, there will be no more time limit in the future. Yas, yas, yassss!
