IGTV

Instagram's new app for watching long-form, vertical videos

3.2/5
About

IGTV is a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators, like LaurDIY posting her newest project or King Bach sharing his latest comedy skit. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start.

    Pros: 

    This is cool, just open and watch. you can continuously watch.

    Cons: 

    showing the contents repeatedly is very disturbing

    just start and watch, you can spend some time like as watching television, only thing which is, it show contents from people I follow only and to get more content i need to follow more people and business. Am using it for more than a week now and the things i watch is what i already watched and i started swiping away thats makes me disturbing.

    Pros: 

    Businesses will finally be able to put long form videos

    Cons: 

    Instagram is not for long form videos

    Instagram should be for images and short clips. Long form videos

    does not make sense here. We have YouTube and Facebook for the same.

    Whats next? Ability to write "text" posts on Instagram? Mark, why are

    just merging features across your apps. This is different for a reason

  • Pros: 

    Nicely Designed

    Cons: 

    Seems harder for new creators to gain spotlight, the concept already exists with Youtube, this isn't really a game-changer

    I like it, but I also don't like it. IGTV doesn't give new users the ability to gain much traction as 'instagram-celebrities' are already dominant.

    Instagram has always been known for sharing pictures, and I think the presence of IGTV takes away what has made Instagram a unique social media platform.

    Pros: 

    A worthy youtube alternative

    Cons: 

    Made by facebook

    A much needed competitor, that will hopefully motivate youtube to improve and mend their ways..

    Pros: 

    great to upload long videos

    Cons: 

    it is an extra app from Instagram

    I just downloaded the ios version from appstore and it is really exciting.
