Move Over Vine, Instagram Launches 15 Second Video Feature
Bye Bye Vine!!! We are sure you guys have all heard of Vine, a social media app that lets users create and share six second videos by pressing and holding your finger on the screen. Well on Thursday morning, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom officially announced video functionality to an audience in San Francisco. Check out what makes this feature SOO much better.
Is 15 seconds.
It will support 13 custom filters just for video. Users can edit the frames of their videos to remove certain segments of the footage.
There will be a function called ‘Cinema’, a mode that acts as a way to stabilize footage.
Users can also choose a cover photo for their videos, which will appear in the stream as a regular photo.
Here is a little message from the co-founder:
Over the past two and a half years, Instagram has become a community where you can capture and share the world’s moments simply and beautifully. Some moments, however, need more than a static image to come to life. Until now these stories have been missing from Instagram. 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.
