How to use IGTV in Instagram?
With the help of IGTV app, you will also be able to share various kind of videos. Actually, this app is quite like YouTube. But remember one thing very clearly, it supports vertical video, which means you’ll have to record video holding your smartphone in an upright position. This app is available on both Android and iOS devices.
In addition to the app, you will see a TV icon in the Instagram app in the Story section, from which you will be able to use this feature on TV by clicking on it.
