Instagram to take on Vine with rumored video-sharing feature

Instagram, the Android and Apple iOS photo sharing app owned by Facebok, will soon become Instagram, the photo and video sharing app, according to new reports.

TechCrunch cites an unnamed source that says Facebook’s June 20 event is to unveil a new video option for Instagram. The app would follow the path of Tout, Vine, and Viddy by uploading short videos ranging from 5 to 10 seconds. Though this is just an unconfirmed rumor with practically no details, one would assume that, if true, Instagram would support filters on the video. The addition of video would be a dramatic shift from the mobile photography niche that Instagram has cultivated.
