Time to Tune in for Some IGTV — Instagram


Creators take their followers from Instagram to their new IGTV channels.

Systrom said IGTV is built to be used on a smartphone, and boosts the time for videos from the previous limit of one minute.

When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch.

Instagram also announced that it now has a billion monthly active users, up from 800 million in September. The user can swipe up to explore a range of long-form videos from tabs like, "For You", "Following", and "Popular".
