Instagram users can now upload videos of up to 60 seconds, which used to have a limit of 15-Seconds. This happened two months after the company granted their advertisers with the same privilege.
Their first video update was introduced in June 2013 which now changed with the new update since the Facebook-owned company allowed extensions of videos into a full minute. Like its corporate parent, Instagram has been gradually transforming its feed from a stream of static images to a more lucrative collection of videos bringing back the ability to make videos out of multiple clips from your camera roll.
