SAN FRANCISCO, April 15 — Facebook’s picture sharing app Instagram is updating its “Explore” section to add video channels that will appear in a feed according to users’ preferences.

The feature will have a personalised channel called “videos you might like” that will collect videos from across Instagram’s global community and also will include a “Featured” column highlighting videos on specific topics, Instagram said.

For now, the upgrade will only be available in the United States, Instagram said yesterday.

Instagram version 7.20 is available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. — Reuters
