As part of its commitment of bringing users fun, flexible and creative ways to create and watch video, Instagram now allows its users to tell their stories in up to 60 seconds of video.
…and they say it is one step of many that users will get to see this year.
Allowing users tell their stories for long became inevitable because “in the last six months, the time people spent watching video increased by more than 40 percent,” Instagram stated in a blogpost.
With the 60 seconds of video feature, users can now enjoy even mean more diverse stories from the accounts they follow.
The feature started rolling out yesterday.
iOS users are even getting more. The ability to make videos out of multiple clips from their camera roll has been brought back. This feature will be available this week in Apple’s App Store as part of Instagram for iOS version 7.19.
