Instagram now supports horizontal IGTV videos
Instagram announced on Monday that videos on IGTV can also be viewed in landscape mode and not just in vertical position, writes The Verge.
The change is being implemented in IGTV, the part on Instagram where there is room for longer videos. In the general part of the app the limit is one minute.
Until now, only vertical videos were allowed. Instagram says the change follows after feedback from video makers. Sometimes horizontal videos were already available on IGTV, but they could not be viewed in full screen.
According to Sensor Tower, the separate IGTV app has been installed around 4.2 million times. In February, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that IGTV was not as popular as previously hoped.
