Instagram today announced plans to increase the maximum length of videos uploaded to the social network from 15 seconds to 60 seconds, giving iOS users an opportunity to upload and share much longer videos.
We want to bring you fun, flexible and creative ways to create and watch video on Instagram. As part of our continued commitment, you’ll soon have the flexibility to tell your story in up to 60 seconds of video. This is one step of many you’ll see this year.
iOS users are also regaining the ability to create videos out of multiple clips from the camera roll, a feature that was available once before but was removed when Instagram simplified its video tools. With Instagram version 7.19, iOS users will once again be able to make videos from several different video clips.
As for longer 60 second videos, Instagram is rolling out the feature starting today. Some customers will have immediate access to the longer video option, while others will gain it in the coming months.
