The videos run vertically, because that's the way most people hold their phones, the company says. "We are re-envisioning mobile video with a new standalone surface that features longer videos and easy discoverability through channels, all in a vertical format that sits upright, in the palm of your hand". In a kind of TV and YouTube hybrid, the app will be organized by channels, which will just lead you to each creator's page.
The new video channels will be accessible directly from a button within the Instagram app when the update rolls out over the next days, but the company has also launched a stand-alone IGTV app for Android and iOS that you can download right now if you want to see what early adopters are already posting.

As with any social platform, videos can be liked, shared, and commented.
