Instagram Quietly Adds Endless Loops With This Update

Instagram recently launched a new application update including endless loops feature —in a similar fashion with Vine.

As you know, the platform allows you to upload videos up to 15 seconds, and now those videos loop infinitely on your timelines!

Started as a photo sharing application, Instagram displays how much weight they give to videos. The launch of Hyperlapse last year was the first step in making it clear.


Together with Instagram’s auto-play feature, this update may turn into a great advantage for marketers on the platform.

We are not sure whether another silent update will take place on Instagram, in order to display the loop counts just like on Vine!

Here’s an example of endless loops, if you haven’t seen them yet:
