Watch long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators. IGTV is different from your typical video experience.

FEATURES * Download and sign in with your Instagram account. You can start watching videos right away. * Watch videos from creators you already follow and others you might like. * Browse other videos or search for a specific creator’s channel as you watch. * Like or comment on videos and send them to your friends in Direct. * Discover creators and follow them right from IGTV to see more of who they are on Instagram.

    To simply put it this app lacks in layout design and functions. I want this app to be great but every time I get on it I get irritated for the reasons above and just end up closing it. The only reason I still have the app is in hopes they change and improve
  • why is this even an app?!?!?

    not sure why IG needed another app just for the same content you get on IG already...i see some vids are longer, but they could’ve done this w/ the app they already have.
  • I see a lot of potential

    This is one of the first updates in a while that has excited me on Instagram. I don’t think this would out rule Youtube anytime soon though. I think people are forgetting all the benefits users get on there and IGTV so far is not something people have warmed up to but I do feel if the app is continually updated for more user friendly usage it could go far. A couple suggestions. Videos should not auto play as soon as you step out of a video there’s no home section so the video just keeps playing in the background until you press pause. It’s a bit obnoxious if not a lot. Also I agree with others who have mentioned that we should just be able to view peoples thumbnails larger instead of the video right behind it. I think also after a while once a person has a lot of videos scrolling will be annoying if it stays left to right. It would be better for the thumbnails to be vertical scrolling up and down. The interface does need a lot of work but the concept is good I would say great but we need more time to see. I do really like that the igtv icon automatically appears on your IG profile once you upload a video. The only thing with updating IG users when new videos are uploaded on to IGTV it may get annoying that the icon stays highlighted at the top of the screen even once a user leaves the Instagram app and refreshes. I think it should just notify once like IG LIVE and then disappear. Or have a section where you can see new content uploaded on to IGTV from the original Instagram app. You can tell a lot of people are just hopping on to IGTV just to clear the notification and they’re not watching the video. I think the notification should feel optional and not forced. I can deal with the fact that you can’t edit videos on IGTV but in the future it would be a nice feature if made simplistic. I think the app needs to aim into being VERY user friendly almost dummy proof because people don’t have a lot of patience for complicated formats on apps. Lastly can we please be able to edit our titles and captions on the IGTV videos! I can tell that will be annoying if we have a typo we can’t fix. Thanks and good luck IG! We’re rooting for you!

    Hi, ‏I've disabled my account on what I think because I posted a video about my friend in my personal account. You think I harassed him or insulted him, but before I posted his video, he agreed, He was allowed to post this video to my account. If you want me to prove I'm ready for it. I did not violate your terms and community guidelines. I publish videos, and my personal photos, you can check everything with my account. I just want to recover my account again.I will not forget that before, you have removed many of my publications because of the reports from people who hate me and make fictitious accounts to to closed my account down. it has become a misunderstanding. Thanks. ‏My disabled account is @lllt_ My friend account is @aboud_hq

    Why no option still to post videos based on their original aspect ratio. Not all videos captured vertically! Also, no option to disable autoplay. Videos For Me start playing automatically although they are completely not per my liking!
  • Make the Home Bar hide on iPhone X,XR,XS,XS Max

    Please make the bar to home hide on the iPhone X,XR,XS,XS Max is kind of annoying having it there at all times while watching a video.
  • Irrelevant

    In Instagrams latest attempt to spread its horizons, they released this app allowing long videos to be shared. Unfortunately, it’s trash. Only about half of your videos show up to be able to post, videos automatically start playing and the content is rarely relevant to what you like. The worst thing about IGTV is it’s irrelevance. It is a completely useless app, and anything you need to see can be found within the instagram app itself. Don’t waste your time trying to download it, it’s not worth it.
  • Should support horizontal videos

    I was really excited that our company could post videos longer than 1:00 but really disappointed that it could only be in vertical orientation. I’ve spent thousands on hiring editors to cut down my 2:00 - 3:00 videos to fit the 60 sec cap on instagram. There’s no way in hell Im going to have my guys cut my videos to fit this ridiculous orientation. It’s unfair to professional videographers and production companies to be able to display their work.

    Love the concept. However - though it's meant to be uploaded from your phone, since the videos are able to be longer I think most people (including myself) are using this as a YouTube alternative, so I'm recording and editing videos in wide lense... Would be nice to be able to rotate your phone and have it go full screen
