Instagram Video Tagging

Instagram, as well as any other social media platform, continues to release new updates from time to time. Currently, the photo-sharing app is testing a new feature that would allow users to tag their friends in videos. Some people are calling it the Instagram video tagging feature. However, it’s still not clear when it will be released.

In fact, the official Instagram blog says that that we cannot tag friends in videos at the moment. However, what we can do is mention them in a comment so that they can see the content.

Today, we will tell you everything we know so far about this upcoming feature.

How Will It Work?

There isn’t much information available regarding this topic. However, we can tell you that the video tagging feature will be a bit different to how photo tagging on Instagram works.

As far as we know, there will be a button that will link to a list of tagged people. Tapping that button will take the users to a new page called¬†” People in this video”,¬†where of course we will be able to see all of those people who are tagged.

As for the way to tag people in Instagram videos? Well, Instagram hasn’t released any information on that yet. Nevertheless, that does not mean tagging people will be something difficult. In fact, once the feature is released, we will teach you how to do it.

Finally, it’s important to understand that they are still testing the feature. Therefore there could be changes that might come as a surprise to us.

In short, we just have to wait until the release to fully understand how the feature will work.

Is There A Release Date?

Unfortunately, Instagram is keeping the release date a secret. As so happens most of the time, the photo-sharing app keeps the information about its updates as quiet as possible.

However, there are a select group of people testing this feature right now and it could not be that long until we hear the good news.
