To add a video to a story, add a template with a space to upload images, tap the image icon, and select a video from your device. Depending on the template, you may be able to add multiple videos.

Edit the video

After adding a video, tap it to display editing options:

  • Tap the video editor icon to add filters, effects, or other visual adjustments.
  • Tap the loop icon to prevent the video from looping.
  • Tap the volume icon to mute the video's sound.
  • Tap the x to delete the video.

Video length on social media

Depending on the length of your video, it may be shortened when sharing your story to social media.

Instagram

The maximum length for videos on Instagram stories is 15 seconds. If you share a longer video, it will be shortened to 15 seconds.

To share the full video, save the story to your device, then upload it to Instagram from your device. The full video will be split into 15 second segments.

Snapchat

The maximum length for videos on Snapchat stories is 10 seconds. If you share a longer video, it will be shortened to 10 seconds.

Video looping

Videos shorter than the maximum length for social media stories will loop to fill the maximum length by default. To disable this, tap the loop icon on the video to set it to play only once.
