After the founders of Instagram resigned from their position, Facebook is functioning on ways in which to integrate the photo-sharing app with its flagship social network. It already added the brand name next to Instagram and is functioning on ways in which to unify both the messaging platforms together.
According to news, Facebook has additionally started acting on ways in which to syndicated Instagram’s IGTV video to Facebook Watch. This was initially reported by tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong who shared in her tweet that Instagram may be performing on a feature that would permit users to post their IGTV content on both – Facebook and Instagram.
Wong says that the feature continues to be in its testing phase and may take a while to reach our devices.
However, once the feature will roll out, it’s anticipated that more video creators will use the IGTV to extend their visibility on both the platforms. As a result, the IGTV will get a lot of exposure – something that it’s lacked since Instagram created it a standalone video app.
IGTV was Facebook’s answer to TikTok and Snapchat where users could interact with their audience through video content. Users may also view the IGTV videos from their Instagram app additionally as the separate IGTV app.
But IGTV never made it huge like its competitors. In fact, the video app was usually stuffed with poor quality video that was often imported from other sources. It’s additionally struggled to rise on the charts of the App Store and as of nowadays, the IGTV ranks on number 159 within the photo & Video category on the app store whereas it remains unranked in the overall top charts. additionally read: There’s a new Instagram hacking trick in town, remember of it Besides enabling the new feature, developers at Instagram also are performing on enhancements on the IGTV app that will hopefully address a number of the creator’s concerns.
When contacted, Facebook refused to comment on the potential syndication. Until an official announcement, all we can do is await the merger to happen.
