Instagram recently launched IGTV, a new section of the Instagram mobile application (and a standalone app) that lets users watch videos that are up to one hour long. If you come across a video on IGTV that you’d like to share with another Instagram user, our guide will show you how this is done.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram app on iOS.
Step 1: Swipe down on the video preview image at the bottom of the screen. This will make the browse menu disappear.
Step 2: Tap the paper airplane icon at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the circle next to the name of the user(s) you wish to send the video to, or tap the Search bar to search for users manually.
Step 4 (optional): If you want to send a message along with the video, tap “Write a message…” at the bottom of the screen.
Step 5: Tap “Send” to send the video (and your message, if you wrote one) to the user(s) you selected.
