Users submitted 40 hours of video per minute at its peak
Everyone was quick to say that Instagram was playing catch-up with Vine when it released its new video option yesterday, but apparently it was doing something right. According to a statement given to CNET, Instagram users submitted 5 million unique videos in the first 24 hours of the app update hitting. That's a monumental number, likely made even bigger by the update hitting both Android and iOS at the exact same time -- Instagram on Android shows over 100 million downloads on the Play Store currently.
Now this is no indication of the long-term viability of the video option on Instagram, but it surely doesn't hurt to tout numbers like that. Have you given Instagram video a try? Sing out in the comments.
