Instagram is reportedly increasing the time limit for Instagram Stories to 60 seconds, from the previous 15 seconds. Previously, Instagram Stories that were longer than 15 seconds would be split into separate segments. Earlier this month, Instagram had introduced parental supervision tools and the Family Center tool back in March. The company was recently fined with a EUR 405 million (about Rs. 3,200 crore) fine for violating European data privacy regulations.
According to a recent study by TechCrunch, Instagram has confirmed that it is increasing the time limit of Instagram stories to 60 seconds higher than the previous limit of 15 seconds. Previously, if a user had posted a video longer than 15 seconds, it used to be divided into smaller segments. This led the process of uploading videos to Instagram Stories to be more complicated, including tagging and mentioning others.
Instagram, according to reports, has begun testing the new enhancement with select users towards the end of last year, according to reports.
