Videos posted to the main Instagram feed can now run up to 60 minutes long, a major change that many users have long been requesting from the Facebook owned social media platform.

That’s a length previously reserved for IGTV videos — and you’ll no longer have to leave the main app to view them.

A spokesperson for Instagram says the IGTV app, now called the Instagram TV app, will remain as a “destination for people to visit with the intent of watching video.”

Instagram head Adam Mosseri recently said it was “no longer a photo-sharing app,” noting the company was prioritising a shift into video amid significant competition from TikTok and YouTube.

Will the changes impact Instagram Reels?

To counter this issue, all new EVs in Australia will be outfitted with AVAS – an audible alert to pedestrians to indicate a EV is headed in their direction.
