Instagram adds video features

Services & Software
Instagram has been letting you share photos with filters for quite a while now, but starting today you can now also shoot video. In the latest version of the app, when you hit the camera button there's a new button to shoot video on the right side of the screen. Like Twitter's Vine app, Instagram video records while you're touching the screen and stops when you let go, but unlike Vine you get 15 seconds of shooting time, and if you make a mistake or wanna re-shoot a section, Instagram video lets you delete the latest section using an onscreen backspace button so you can quickly re-shoot. At the end of your video, you can touch next to move on to the next step applying filters. Here you'll be able to watch your video and you can browse through 13 filters and see what you like best. Just below the video you can turn on Instagram's Cinema feature to stabilize your video or just keep the raw footage. The next step is to pick a cover frame that will be displayed in your feed before the video starts playing. Finally, you'll move on to the share screen where you can add a caption, add your location, and choose which social networks to share with. If you don't pick any of the ones at the bottom, your video will still be shared with other Instagram users. Instagram is available right now for free at the App Store and on Google Play. And with all these new features, expect to see a lot more activities people rediscover Instagram. I'm Jason Parker for CNET and this has been a First Look at Instagram's new video feature. Thanks for watching.
