Instagram Videos Now Loop Automatically
iPhone users can now enjoy looping videos in their Instagram feed. The picture-sharing app recently pushed out an update that adds the feature. Instagram may be used more for sharing photos, but the service supports 15-second video clips, too. Now when users encounter a video in their feed it will automatically restart after playing — much like videos do in the Twitter-owned Vine app. Instagram says the looping videos will not alter how much data the app uses. Instagram for iOS is free to download from the iTunes App Store. Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, hasn't said when the feature might appear on Android.
