What is IGTV?

IGTV is Instagrams new app that will allow you to upload and watch vertical videos from your favorite content creators. IGTV allows users to watch up to 1 hour long videos and also allow content creators to monetize the content.

On the part of the user, IGTV what it does is that when you open the application, it starts to reproduce the contents that you think are relevant to you. This is like watching television, in theory, you do not decide what you want to see.

IGTV app is available for all Apple iOS users and Google Android users. Apple users can go to the App store and Android user can find it in the Google play store.
