A couple weeks ago, Instagram increased the limit on video clips users could post to the service from 15 seconds up to a minute. With longer footage, the filter-driven photography app is offering new ways to browse those videos was well. A new update adds video channels to the application's Explore feed, the spot where you can catch up on what's popular based on photos and clips you've liked.

The Explore tab now compiles videos in feeds for Featured items (like comedy stars) and "Videos You Might Like." If you happen to come across something you don't like, you can tell Instagram to keep similar videos out of your feed in the future. Right now, the video channels are only available in the US on iOS and Android, but they'll roll out to other locales "soon."
