With 130 million users, it was only a matter of time until Instagram got into the video business. Taking a cue from the burgeoning app, Vine, Instagram launched a video feature this week. Users can take a 15 second video and add in filter features. So far, Vine just lets you take a quick 6 second video.
Users are getting into the video swing of things, experimenting with the longer film time. It’s worked for three out of four users. Al Roker said he made a great video and then it froze during uploading. No doubt Instagram will be updating that bug shortly.
