Instagram Videos Just Got Really Long

Today Instagram announced that it will allow 60 second long videos.

So far Instagram videos have been only 15 seconds long at the maximum. Today Facebook's Instagram announced that it will allow 4 times longer videos. Instagram users can now release 60 second long videos. 

Instagram said in a statement today: "We want to bring you fun, flexible and creative ways to create and watch video on Instagram. As part of our continued commitment, you’ll soon have the flexibility to tell your story in up to 60 seconds of video. This is one step of many you’ll see this year. In the last six months, the time people spent watching video increased by more than 40 percent. And longer videos mean more diverse stories from the accounts you love, whether it’s Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) hanging out with friends or beauty star Bretman Rock’s (@bretmanrock) latest makeup tutorial."

Longer video on Instagram begins rolling out today and will be available for everyone in the coming months. Multi-clip video is available this week as part of Instagram for iOS version 7.19 in Apple’s App Store.

Instagram released a video to celebrate the announcement.
