Instagram Tests Video Tagging Feature Among Select Users

Instagram Tests Video Tagging Feature Among Select Users

Instagram is testing a brand new feature that will eventually allow users to tag their friends in videos. It's not the first and definitely not the last new feature that Instagram tests before making it available to everyone.
A few days ago, the social network released another improvement that made it much easier for Instagram users to reply with emojis. This particular feature was being tested since May, so the video tagging option may take a while to prepare for primetime.
