Instagram might soon add seek-bar to videos on users' feed


The latest seek-bar feature on the videos being uploaded on a feed has been revealed by a Developer Jane Manchun Wong. Wong took it to Twitter to share a demo of this new feature's functionality. And it seems that all a user will need to do is slide forward or backward on the video to skip or rewind.

Notably, this feature is said to be rolled out for the videos uploaded on a user's Instagram profile and not on the stories. This feature has been much awaited as until now there was no option to move through the videos added on feed. One has to watch the entire 60-second video in order to rewatch any specific part of the video. The seek-bar addition is definitely going to make it easy. Moreover, one can also skip on any part of the video.

It is worth noting that this feature is currently available on IGTV videos. However, there is no word from the company as to when this feature will be added to the videos officially. We are still waiting for some concrete information to be available on the same and will keep you updated with the further updates on this new feature.
