Earlier this month, Instagram launched IGTV, a new tab in the Instagram mobile application (and a standalone app) that lets users watch videos that are up to one hour long. If you come across an IGTV video you’d like to share outside of the Instagram app, our guide will show you how this done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram app on iOS.

Step 1: Swipe down on the video preview image to make the browse menu disappear.

Step 2: Tap the three dots at the bottom of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Copy Link.” From there, you can paste the link into an email, tweet, text message, etc. to share the video with other users outside of the Instagram app.
