Instagram rolls out support for video uploads of up to 60 seconds

Instagram is giving people more freedom to express themselves in video form. The social network is rolling out an update that will support video uploads of up to 60 seconds, well above the previous limit of just 15 seconds.

Instagram stated:

In the last six months, the time people spent watching video increased by more than 40 percent. And longer videos mean more diverse stories from the accounts you love, whether it's Selena Gomez hanging out with friends or beauty star Bretman Rock's latest makeup tutorial.

The longer video support will be available worldwide in the coming months.

  • When on windows phone?
  • Good question.
  • Soon! Posted from my Lumia 930 W10 Mobile Device via the Windows Central App for Windows 10
  • Soon = Never
  • Think that's what everyone is wondering. However, because the Instagram application that was ported from iOS is here, it'll arrive sooner more so than later. Zachary Bowling - ZAD Apps
  • I'd say sooner rather than later. We seem on par with the iOS app generally now.
  • thats because it is the IOS app, the developer just ported it over.  its actually easier for dev's who port apps since it will work from the same kernal so they can issue updates and fix problems easier. So any ported apps will pretty much be right on or around the same build as as there OS counterpart. 
  • Lol. I know. ;)
  • I'd bet 6Tag beats IG-Beta.
  • We also have no idea when it will be available on windows phone..,They have never updated that app
  • Windows 10 mobile or die ;)
  • Probably never for Windows Phone and probably soon after iOS rather than later for Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Only in win 10 I think
  • Yes , and in the family of Lumia 920/520/720.....
  • That awesome
  • Can't get it stuck on 8.1 :(
  • Downgrade to 7.8 or 7.5
  • Get a 640 +640/Win10
  • Maybe they will fix it and I'll be able to upload pictures also!
  • Not seeing any update.. Win 10 mobile non insider
  • The article says: It will be rolling out over the next few months
  • Insta & facebook suck so hard on this platform. The low interest for wp is such a shame, as its easy the nicest looking mobile os out there
  • Any info for W10 ? Sent from DOS
  • The Windows Instagram app is still missing the context menu functionality such as the ability to follow individual feeds. Hoping this will be added on the native app as well as for 6tag now that Instagram has changed the way it sorts your news feed.
  • Why I get the old app when I search it on Store not the ported one? This is so stupid and annoying man!
  • Because it's in beta testing.. Just get a link to it from an article..
  • I still can't download videos to Instagram on my L 550.
  • Rudy 6tag to come big here
  • And bring new timeline algorithm..
    It's a trap eh?
