Back in October 2021, Instagram said goodbye to IGTV and feed videos and replaced them with Instagram Video. Although having fewer choices may initially not seem ideal, Instagram Video actually has the best of both previous options and then some!
Like IGTV, with Instagram video, you can upload a video that is up to 60 minutes long through a tab in your profile and can also be featured in your profile and discovery feed. In addition, Instagram Video allows you to trim before posting, tag location and people in your videos, and add captions (yay for the hard-of-hearing community 🙌 )! Now that Instagram videos are just like feed videos, those who schedule posts ahead of time are free to do so with ease! And best of all, this feature allows for cross-posting videos to Stories and can be direct messaged!
