Instagram is also launching 13 new custom video filters to add to your videos.

Similar to Twitter's Vine, you can stop and go as you record. But unlike Vine, you can remove certain clips if something gets in the way.

The apps interface remains the same. Videos are in your feed along with photos. 

When you come upon a video, which is marked by an icon in the top right corner, it plays once and doesn't loop.  You can also select a cover photo to represent your video.
