Instagram just released a new update for iOS and Android adding video capabilities. You are now able to capture up to 15-seconds of footage and apply 13 brand new filters specifically designed for Instagram. It seems the right move with the success of Twitters “Vine” app.
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera.
Interestingly enough there is also an image-stabilisation feature which is turned on by default so even those with a shaky hand can shoot relatively still video.
You just know this will bring a whole new artistic level to coffee and food shots.
You can get the update now through the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
