Did video kill the Instagram star? Well, not necessarily. But the app which is known for photo sharing has now dabbled with video features too. Instagram is now allowing users to capture 15 second video clips, and what makes Instagram one of the best photo apps, the video will also have 15 different filters for the video.
Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram had this to say on the Instagram blog, “Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera,”
This move might be a very competitive one since Twitter is fast advancing in the video sharing capabilities. The public has yet to test the new feature and see if they like it or if it is even necessary.
