Have you heard? Yesterday, Instagram, a favorite photo sharing app, launched an exciting update that has the tech world buzzing: the ability to share videos.
Now, when you take a photo on Instagram, you will see a movie camera icon. Tap the icon to enter video mode, and take up to 15 seconds of video to share with your followers. Additionally, you are able to chose from 13 filters to give the video the signature Instagram touch. You also have the ability to edit by screen, which is something top video sharing competitor, Vine, does not currently offer.
Check out this video from Instagram to show video sharing in action, and learn how to get started!
This update is one of a few recent big expansions and updates to the app, including the ability to add user tags, and a web presence beyond mobile and tablets. Instagram is owned by leading social media site Facebook, and this recent update is a huge step in taking over video sharing traffic from the app Vine, owned by competiting social site, Twitter.
What do you think? Will you be sharing videos on your account to show off your recent events, a peek inside your day, or favorite inspirations?
