Instagram's 'Explore' tab gets more personal with recommended video channels

Finding videos you like in Instagram should now be a little easier thanks to the latest update to the app's Explore section. When browsing Explore, you'll now see "Picked for You" channels loaded with videos based on your favorite topics.

From Instagram:

Diverse communities flourish on Instagram — from comedians and bakers to skateboarders and hip-hop dancers. Now, you'll see new channels filled with the best videos from around the world based on topics you find interesting.

Video channels were introduced to the Explore feed in April after also allowing videos up to 60 seconds in length. Both changes must have had a decent impact, as Instagram notes that it has seen the time people spend watching video jump by 150% in the past 6 months.

In any case, it sounds like you should start seeing video channels that will be of greater interest the next time you start browsing your Explore tab. Do note, however, that this feature is only currently available in the U.S., but it should be on its way to the rest of the globe soon.

  • My Instagram says it's the new version but it still looks like the old one. Only thing that changed for me was the app icon. My daughter doesn't have marshmallow and hers is completely different looking than mine. I'm still waiting on mm thanks to AT&T. Posted via the Android Central App
