Instagram Video: Combining IGTV and Feed Video

As announced in October, 2021 Instagram is combining IGTV and feed videos into one format – Instagram Video. In-app, the IGTV tab has been replaced with a new combined video tab where videos will live. This means that going forward, videos of all lengths will no longer have titles, and the FEED vs IGTV distinction will be phased out.

For all current API versions, for all Instagram Videos:

  • IG Media media_product_type will only return FEED (i.e., IGTV cannot be returned)
  • IG Media video_title will not be returned
  • Instagram Webhooks comments and mentions fields will be supported

Instagram will be deprecating IG Media video_title and will throw an error if requested in 2-years.
