This week, Instagram added a new “Serial” option to IGTV. This will allow creators to categorize their videos or collect them as series. Also, it will be possible to notify subscribers about the release of a new video.
The new “Serial” option will allow you to add marks to the video, corresponding to a category or topic. By clicking on this tag, the viewer will go to a separate tab where he can watch all videos on this topic, as well as enable notifications about new videos.
