Instagram rolls out support for video uploads of up to 60 seconds

Instagram is giving people more freedom to express themselves in video form. The social network is rolling out an update that will support video uploads of up to 60 seconds, well above the previous limit of just 15 seconds.

Instagram stated:

In the last six months, the time people spent watching video increased by more than 40 percent. And longer videos mean more diverse stories from the accounts you love, whether it's Selena Gomez hanging out with friends or beauty star Bretman Rock's latest makeup tutorial.

The longer video support will be available worldwide in the coming months. In addition the iOS version of Instagram will bring back a much-requested feature in its latest update: the ability to make videos out of multiple clips from the iPhone's camera roll.
