How to choose custom covers for IGTV videos on Instagram | Social networks

IGTV, Instagram's video platform, allows users to define custom covers for movies before posting them on a channel. The feature, available in the app for iPhone (iOS) and Android phones, is an option to attract attention and increase the audience of the content. The selected cover can be a video frame or, as we will show, an art or photo created by the user.
