Instagram lets you post previews of IGTV videos in the traditional feed. The feature provides up to a minute of recording, and invites friends to continue watching the content on the secondary platform. The feature acts as a way to pique friends' curiosity to access your IGTV channel, and is also useful for posting long videos without cutting them using external apps.
To view the full version of the video, simply tap the IGTV tag that is automatically added in the corner of the image. At the end of playback, the player is minimized and Instagram returns to the usual posts. It is noteworthy that recordings published as prior are also added to the user profile, as a common post. Here's how to post a video preview of an IGTV video to the Instagram feed.
