Instagram has updated its apps for iOS and Android devices to let users import their videos from their smartphones.
Users can now not only import their videos, but they can also edit them down to the best 15 seconds of each, much like how they edit videos that are recorded through the Instagram app.
In a blog post Wednesday, Instagram said: “Starting today you can upload videos from your phone’s media library and share those moments to Instagram regardless of when they were captured. Once you select the video clip you’d like to import, you can trim it down to the exact part you like best. We’ve also made it so that you can choose how you square-crop your clip so you can keep the action front and center.”
Besides letting Instagram users import their own videos, the update ensures that photos taken on the Instagram app will be automatically straightened so they won’t look crooked. The straightening tool also lets users adjust and rotate photos any way they would like. The update also adds video for Android 4.0 users.
