Instagram Newest Update
Instagram recently announced a new feature that allows users to share IGTV videos to IG Stories. However, there is one thing to keep in mind. Let’s remember IGTV videos are allowed to last longer than Instagram Stories videos.
In fact, verified accounts are allowed to upload up to 1-hour videos on their IGTV channels. On the other hand, Instagram Stories videos have a time limit of up to 15 seconds.
Therefore, we cannot share a full IGTV video to our Instagram Stories. However, what we can do, is share a preview of our IGTV videos. But, how does this help us? Well, this feature allows users to simply share content by tapping a single option.
Thanks to the newest Instagram release we do not have to upload a video to both IGTV and Instagram Stories. In other words, we save a lot of time.
Finally, there is one more thing you need to know. Sharing a preview of an IGTV video on Stories will allow users to swipe up and be redirected to where they can watch the full IGTV video.
This Is How You Can Share IGTV Videos To IG Stories
Instagram has made sure to make it simple for users to share their IGTV videos to their Instagram Stories. In fact, all you need to do is simply select the paper plane icon on the bottom of your IGTV video and then tap where it says “Add video to your story”
Here’s a short tutorial uploaded by Instagram on Twitter showing us how to do it.
Now you can share your favorite IGTV videos to your story. Tap the paper airplane at the bottom of the video you want to share. When friends see your story, they can tap the preview to watch the whole video in IGTV. pic.twitter.com/oaatUoOqZY— Instagram (@instagram) November 1, 2018
Instagram has done a great job with this new feature. In fact, all users are now able to share their IGTV videos to their Stories. Before this update, only business accounts were allowed to do such a thing.
Perhaps we will see more of this in the future, exclusive business features for all Instagram accounts. We’ll just have to wait and see!
