Instagram launched IGTV, a new video tab within the main Instagram application (a separate IGTV app is coming soon). IGTV lets you share videos up to one hour long, but you’ll need to create an IGTV channel first. Our guide will show you how to create an IGTV channel within the Instagram app.

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

Step 1: On your Instagram home feed, tap the IGTV logo near the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon on the right side of the screen.

Step 3:  Tap “Create Channel” at the bottom of the screen.

Step 4: You’ll see a brief introduction to IGTV. Tap “Next” on the first and second screens, and then tap “Create Channel” on the third screen. Your channel will be created, and you’ll be able to start uploading videos to this section of the app.
