Just as we reported Facebook today has announced video for Instagram, saying it aimed to make video as easy to create and share as possible. Generally its looks and feels the same, but next to the main
capture icon is now a video camera icon. The user taps the button to begin recording up to 15 seconds of video. It will become available for iOS and Android simultaneously.
Instagram video contains a delete button unlike vine. Tapping it will eliminate the most recently recorded segment. As you might expect with Instagram, the app includes filters: 13 of them
to start, created with the help of a video artist, the company said.
The videos autoplay like Vines, but they do not loop. “It doesn’t get in the way,” Systrom said. “We’ve
worked a ton on making it fast, simple of beautiful.”
