Instagram Removes the IGTV Button

In Instagram news, they have removed the IGTV button from the Instagram mobile app.


Why Removing the IGTV Button Matters For Your Business

For years, Instagram has been trying to get Instagram users to adopt IGTV. Unfortunately, IGTV has struggled to gain adoption.

While Instagram has removed the IGTV button, they primarily did this because users have found the content in their Instagram Feed instead.

The good news is that you'll still be able to use the IGTV app or access it from the Explore page, promo stickers in Stories and a users profile tab.

If you're still wondering why you should use IGTV over YouTube, we would recommend asking your customers where they spend their time at. If they are on YouTube, focus on building a community there and test out IGTV so that when your audience is ready, you'll have some content for them.
