“A small team has been working on a big idea.” is what Facebook the announcement invite said.

Its really simple to capture a video. There’s a new icon of Video when you try to capture a imagine, no separate screen/section. We also have 13 new filters designed for videos only!

You could select any of the filters just like you did for photos, see a preview of the video.


Also, you’ve can add a custom cover frame to each of your videos to make it look more exciting! A video is also marked with a icon on the top right corner in your stream.


Ah! it plays only once, doesn’t loop, and serves aptly. Unlike annoying Vine for me! Each video can be of 15 seconds and not 6 seconds like Vine.

Cinema : Cinematic stabilisation for videos on Instagram, helps you get your video quality better.
