Instagram introduces video channels as a part of the Explore tab


Just recently, Instagram expanded its video up to 60 seconds in length, and since, they have been following the footsteps of the parent firm, Facebook on putting a ton of labor into a video of late.

Last April 14, 2016, Instagram started rolling out the revamped Explore tab that does appear more than a lone video banner at the top. Users can now see personalized channels such as “Videos you might like” which collects videos from across the Instagram community.

The Instagram team wrote in a blog post, “And as you scroll through the Explore grid, you may also see “Featured” channels filled with videos on specific topics.” The social networking app, on the other hand, is aware that some might actually cringe with the new update so it clarified and said that this should connect users to post about their interests from people they don’t yet follow and that the more they like, the better Explore gets, regarding the issue,  if a user sees something they don’t like, they just need to tap “See Fewer Posts Like This” in the ‘…’ menu to make one’s Explore experience even better.

The 7.20 update of the app is only available in the United States, but the Instagram team is already working to bring this to the rest of the world in no time.
