Instagram, Test New Features to Watch Videos

Instagram, Test New Features to Watch Videos

Instagram is testing new features to watch videos on the app's homepage or photos and feed-sharing video content.

This feature was discovered by an application researcher named Jane Manchun Wong, via a Twitter account.

Wong shares new features on Instagram that will provide a timeline bar when watching videos, as seen in other videos watching apps like YouTube.

With this time bar, users can repeat or advance the video being watched without having to start the video from scratch.

Mentioned from The Verge page, Instagram has actually provided this feature for IGTV. However, they will soon expand it to the main feed. This feature is only tested for the home page. While Story Instagram is not included.

In February, Instagram launched a new feature for displaying IGTV footage through Feeds so that users uploading new content on IGTV, video footage will enter the feed and be seen by their followers.

IGTV video recording enters Instagram feed for one minute. Users can also share video recordings on their personal profile.

Exciting Tips : How To Creating Content on IGTV

Exciting Tips : How To Creating Content on IGTV

Instagram released a new application called IGTV. This is a platform that is intended to watch long-duration vertical format videos that can be run on Android and iOS devices.

If you are interested in creating content on IGTV. The following exciting tips to make interesting videos on IGTV:

1. Maximize the potential of cameras and cellphones

Before recording a video, you can start by setting several settings that will help in obtaining quality vertical videos such as:

- Activate the grid display in guiding framing and adjusting the layout of the subject.
- Adjust focus or exposure when recording video.
- For iPhone users, enable silent mode on your cellphone so that the recorded video will not be interrupted by the notification sound from your cellphone's voice.

2. Record videos with the best lighting

When recording videos with high-speed frames, the more light you need.

3. Keep recording videos in 4K format. 

Even though you don't plan to share videos in 4K format, recording videos in this format is recommended to make it easier for you when editing videos later. 

4. Make sure the sound is recorded properly. 

In recording video, sound is one of the important things. If you are trying to record sound from a distant source, try to use the remote microphone and make sure your video is free of wind noise when outdoors. 

5. Edit your video! 

Some applications like Videoleap, InShot, or Carve can help you edit your videos more easily via mobile. 

6. Use supporting accessories to help interesting videos

For example, using lenses such as Macro, Fisheye, Wide, Tele; then use stabilization for better quality when recording moving objects or when you are actively vlogging.

Instagram leave Apple Watch

Instagram leave Apple Watch

In the application update, Instagram removes Apple Watch support. Is this the aftermath of Apple CEO Tim Cook vs. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's dispute?

The loss of Instagram from Apple Watch is confirmed in Instagram application version 39.9, the application Watch no longer has. This is apparently due to Apple's new limitations.

Ie starting from April 1 App Apple Watch Update should or should be done later through watchOS 2 SDK, while the clock App must be made at least use watchOS 4 SDK.

While Instagram uses WatchKit 1.0, manufactured when third-party applications can not run independently in the Apple Watch. As a result, the Instagram application does not get any new features like video support or can work with LTE connection.

The loss of Instagram support for Apple Watch follows the steps of a number of other companies such as Twitter, Google, Amazon and Slack. Most companies that bought the app on Apple Watch just needed a good notification feature.

They even perceive that removing the application can improve the experience of using the application.
