Longer Instagram stories will be available soon, Meta has verified. If an Instagram user publishes a story that is less than 60 seconds long, it is now divided into 15-second chunks.
In an email to Tech Crunch, a Meta representative confirmed the speculation, saying, “Now, you’ll be able to play and create stories continuously for up to 60 seconds instead of being automatically split into 15-second pieces.”
It will be a huge relief for Instagram users, especially those who often post longer video stories. Their stories are broken up into 15-second chunks. Users can now publish continuous stories that will not be broken up. Furthermore, users do not have to keep tapping to get through a long film. That is a time-consuming and exhausting process.
Previously, a Twitter user named Matt Navarra published a post about its working on this functionality. He uploaded a screenshot of Instagram’s new lengthier stories feature. “Instagram Confirms Videos Under 60 Seconds in Stories Will No Longer Be Segmented,” he wrote.
Instagram is constantly expanding into the video area. Instagram, which began as a photo-sharing app, is evolving into a video-focused app. In recent months, big startups have said that the platform is too similar to TikTok and should change.
Instagram is a photo and video sharing social networking website founded in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and later acquired by Facebook Inc., now known as Meta Platforms. Users can submit media to the app, which can then be filtered and organized using hashtags and geotagging. Posts can be shared with the whole public or pre-approved followers. People can read popular content, such as images, and follow other users to add their content to their personal feeds.
In March 2020, Instagram debuted a new feature called “Co-Watching.” Thanks to the new functionality, users may now share content with one another via video calls. According to Instagram, they rushed the launch of Co-Watching to meet the demand for digitally engaging with friends and family created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
