Instagram announced some changes, and users will now be able to upload videos up to 1 hour long.
Alongside with the longer videos, Instagram has also announced that they will launch a standalone app, IGTV. “It’s time for video to move forward, and evolve,” said Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom onstage at the event. “IGTV is for watching long-from videos from your favorite creators.” Just before he took the stage, Instagram’s business blog outed details of IGTV.
Good news is, there aren’t any limitations here. Everyone but the “newest” accounts will be able to upload 1-hour videos. The IGTV app will be available for iOS and Android within the next 24 hours or so, so go check it out.
