Finally, just a couple of days after hearing rumors that Facebook will launch a video service for Instagram , the rabbit is out of the hat.
Much to the delight of many Instagram users, Facebook, who now owns Instagram, announced earlier today that Instagram is now able to support videos. Mark Zuckerberg did the honor of inviting Instagram founder Kevin Systrom onstage to talk about it.
Officially called Video on Instagram, it basically lets users capture videos up to 15 seconds via the Instagram camera app. Users simply need to tap the video camera icon to enter video mode, and 13 new filters are also available to enhance videos.
Even more interesting is a new feature called "Cinema" which will stablize videos, making them appear better and clearer. Video on Instagram is now avaiable on iOS and Android as an update. Make sure to get version 4 to enjoy the feature.
