Instagram Doubles Down on Videos in the Explore Tab

Instagram is introducing a revamped Explore section this week, one which highlights more videos instead of plain ol’ photography. When you go to the Explore section, you will find personalized channel called “Videos You Might Like,” which collects videos from across the Instagram community. From here, you can better tune the Explore tab to show videos on topics you are more interested in. The more time that goes by, the more algorithmically curated your experience will become. 

When browsing through the section, users can find entire channels that are dedicated to topics you like, such as cars, food, landscapes, and more. Instagram states that even with these changes, the overall Explore experience won’t change at all. It’s still your go-to section for finding quality content from people or brands that you may want to follow. If you happen to see something you don’t like, you can press the “…” menu button and hit, “See Fewer Posts Like This.”

This update is rolling out to all users on iOS and Android starting today. To make sure you are running the latest version, this version number is 7.20.

Also, now would be a good time for us to hype our @droid_life Instagram account. Follow us because it’s awesome!
