People are not happy with Instagram’s impending timeline changes, but a new tweak could soften the blow. The photocentric social network sent users in a tailspin after announcing it would follow in the footsteps of Facebook and Twitter with a non-chronological feed. They’re testing things out before making a switch, but it’s only a matter of time before the algorithmic timeline sets in.
In the meantime, the app is letting users record 60-second videos that will go beyond the current 15-second limit, the Daily Dotreports. That’s plenty of time to upload a friendly reminder to Instagram not to ruin your timeline with that Facebook-inspired replacement.
This latest fix comes after the social network added view counts to their videos and began curating packages that closely resemble Twitter Moments. Expect to see the change as early as Tuesday. iPhone users will also be able to converge multiple clips into one video once they download the latest version of the app available later this week.
It’s already available to verified users like Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s, who uploaded a hilarious clip of his off season antics. Selena Gomez also used it to preview some brand new music.
