IGTV Ha llegado!!

La nueva herramienta fue presentado por Kevin Systrom, cofundador y CEO de Instagram, quien explicó que la nueva app fue creada para solucionar uno de los que, aseguran, es uno de los mayores inconvenientes de los smartphones: ver videos horizontales en posición vertical. “Reimaginamos la forma de ver videos. IGTV permitirá ver videos de larga duración en un formato vertical”, dijo Systrom.

From our CEO @kevin: “Today, we have two big announcements to share. First, Instagram is now a global community of one billion! Since our launch in 2010, we’ve watched with amazement as the community has flourished and grown. This is a major accomplishment — so from all of us at Instagram, thank you! Second, we’re announcing our most exciting feature to date: IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators, like LaurDIY (@laurdiy) posting her newest project or King Bach (@kingbach) 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. IGTV is different in a few ways. First, it’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical. Also, unlike on Instagram, videos aren’t limited to one minute. Instead, each video can be up to an hour long. We made it simple, too. Just like turning on the TV, IGTV starts playing as soon as you open the app. You don’t have to search to start watching content from people you already follow on Instagram and others you might like based on your interests. You can swipe up to discover more — switch between “For You,” “Following,” “Popular” and “Continue Watching.” You can also like, comment and send videos to friends in Direct. Also like TV, IGTV has channels. But, in IGTV, the creators are the channels. When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch. Anyone can be a creator — you can upload your own IGTV videos in the app or on the web to start your own channel. Instagram has always been a place to connect with the people who inspire, educate and entertain you every day. With your help, IGTV begins a new chapter of video on Instagram. We hope it brings you closer to the people and things you love. IGTV will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks on iOS and Android.

Con el lanzamiento de esta aplicación –que podrá verse en la pestaña de #Explore o Explorar dentro de Instagram–, la empresa propiedad de Facebook busca competir de manera directa con YouTube. Se espera que la nueva app salga a nivel global en las próximas semanas tanto para usuarios de Android como de iOS.

IGTV se encontrará en la parte superior de Instagram a un costado de ‘Direct’, la función de mensajería de Instagram. También se podrá acceder mediante una aplicación independiente y desde una versión de escritorio.
