Instagram is testing new features to watch videos on the app’s homepage or photos and feed-sharing video content.
This feature was discovered by an application researcher named Jane Manchun Wong, via a Twitter account.
Wong shares new features on Instagram that will provide a timeline bar when watching videos, as seen in other videos watching apps like YouTube.
With this time bar, users can repeat or advance the video being watched without having to start the video from scratch.
Mentioned from The Verge page, Instagram has actually provided this feature for IGTV. However, they will soon expand it to the main feed. This feature is only tested for the home page. While Story Instagram is not included.
In February, Instagram launched a new feature for displaying IGTV footage through Feeds so that users uploading new content on IGTV, video footage will enter the feed and be seen by their followers.
IGTV video recording enters Instagram feed for one minute. Users can also share video recordings on their personal profile.
