Instagram Live's paid badge is now rolling out to more creators worldwide after its limited testing since earlier this year. It lets fans stand out in the comments, among other perks.
Facebook-owned Instagram has announced new monetization tools for creators on the platform, including the addition of ads on IGTV, as well as the ability to buy badges in live streams.
Instagram announced that its IGTV video platform is receiving support for landscape videos, making it easier for creators to share content without having to tailor videos for portrait viewing.
Today, Instagram has begun displaying short IGTV previews from people you follow on your main feed front and center as the Facebook-owned service seeks to grow adoption of that video platform.
YouTube is testing a new Explore tab in its iOS app which brings content discovery features to the users. The users will be able to discover content similar to what they watch and like.
Instagram is today announcing that its service has reached one billion users worldwide and it's taken the opportunity to launch a new video service focused on mobile creators and devices.
