Instagram Launches IGTV, A New Long-Form Video Service Aimed At Content Creators

SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) — Facebook’s video service Instagram today launched IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video.

Unlike Instagram’s previous videos, which were limited to 60 seconds, IGTV will allow content creators to upload longer videos – up to an hour long for some users – that can be viewed via Instagram, or through the standalone IGTV app, the company said.
