Instagram already lets users share videos in Stories and Reels. The company has now added another place where you can put videos. We are talking about video notes. The company lets users create and share notes with their followers. Notes are shown at the top of the DM list. So, people you had a conversation with can see your Notes at the top of the conversations list in the DM section. Initially, the company allowed only text notes. Later, it added music notes where users can share music. Now users can also create video notes.
Instagram Video notes can only be up to two seconds. It also forces users to record a video directly from the camera. You cannot upload any existing video. These are a few things that make video notes different from video stories. Like other notes, video notes are also shared for up to 24 hours. After this time, notes will no longer be visible. You can always delete a note by tapping on it, and then tapping Delete note. Any of your friends can reply to your note. Their replies will be shown in the chat. No one can see who viewed or replied to your notes.
