IGTV now supports landscape video – once again is a change comes from listening creators and viewers.
So now, it’s possible to upload landscape videos in addition to vertical.
In many ways, opening IGTV to more than just vertical videos is similar to when we opened Instagram to more than just square photos in 2015. For viewers, this means IGTV will be a place to watch even more content from the creators.
For creators, this means more freedom to express themselves how they want. Vertical videos work great for creators who want to be up-close and personal with their audience; but landscape also has its strengths, especially when it comes to formats like dance and sports which are high motion and often feature a handful of people in frame.
