Instagram has just been updated to version 4.1 — the first major release since video landed in the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app. With this update, users can now import video from their library, and iOS users can take advantage of a photo straightening feature. The most important change, however, is that users of Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich are finally able to share videos. Considering that ICS currently amounts to a whopping 22.5% of all Android users, this was a significant segment to leave unsupported. The new ability to import video from your smartphone’s library — rather than having to record content within the app — contrasts Twitter-owned competitor Vine. For many, the absence of video import was quite frustrating, and this is a welcome change.
