Instagram tests seek bar

Photo sharing app Instagram is testing a new seek bar for videos posted on users’ feed, which will allow them to skip forward or rewind in a video.

The feature was spotted by developer Jane Manchun Wong, who also posted on Twitter a preview of how it works.

Instagram’s new seek bar will reportedly be added on top of a video. It looks like the user can scrub through the bar to skip to the exact part of the video they want to watch or rewind as well.

This essentially means users will be able to skip to the end or any other part of the video on their friend’s feed. They will not be forced to watch the entire video when in reality they are interested in only a part of it.
