So why is this IGTV feature a game-changer?

The biggest change is that you no longer have to go live on Instagram and deliver a perfect video from start to finish. IGTV allows you to record videos however you’d like, and upload them to your channel. But the best part of the feature?

You can create your own video series for Instagram. 

You can start a design series about your creative process from beginning-to-end. Instagram users can follow you and choose to receive notifications when you drop your next episode. It’s genius!

To hear more ideas for your own series—and find out what the Wingnut Social upcoming series will be about—check out the whole minisode now!

  1. Open the app and touch the IGTV icon in the top right corner.
  2. Click the + button in the top right corner.
  3. Choose the video that you’d like to add and click ‘Next’.
  4. Choose a cover photo (either a still from the video or your camera roll)
  5. Add a title, description, and pertinent information then choose ‘Add to Series’.
  6. If you haven’t created a series yet, it will give you the option to create and name one.
