Instagram is considering doing away with video length constraints

Instagram is considering extending the maximum running time of videos on its platform from 60seconds up to an hour. At present, Instagram Stories are limited to a length of 15 seconds; videos in the main feed can run a little longer at 60 seconds. Instagram is considering doing away with video length constraints.

The Wall Street Journal, published a report about “a new feature” that would let instagram users post long-form video-clips of up to an hour. According to The Verge This new feature would open new creative flexibility for users and bring Instagram closer in line with YouTube and its own parent company, Facebook.

The Journal also disclosed that, this new feature on instagram “will focus on vertical video". The report doesn't really clarify whether longer videos would be allowed only in the stories section of the app or also permitted in the main feed, having known that Instagram Stories are already designed around that vertical video format.
