Instagram Updates Explore Section With Video Compilations

You may have noticed holiday-themed videos front and center in Instagram’s Explore feature throughout the holiday season. Explore’s ‘Spotlight Compilations’ launched during Halloween and has been used to feature videos from key events and holiday moments. Today Instagram announced the feature will now be a staple within the app and will highlight daily video content to offer new experiences to users. The daily themes will vary and intend to show users content they might not see otherwise on the platform. The feature is similar to Snapchat’s Live Video feature, however Instagram video content attributes users. This moves marks another push towards making video more of a priority on the platform.
