In January, Facebook prevented Twitter-owned video-sharing application Vine from accessing its find friends application-programming interface. Now, according to one report, the social network may be testing a video-sharing feature of its own.
A source close to Facebook told Matthew Keys of The Desk that the video-sharing feature was being tested internally, and it would allow users to upload videos of between five and 10 seconds from their mobile devices to Instagram, the photo-sharing network Facebook acquired last September.
The source told Keys it was unclear if the Facebook video-sharing feature would launch to all Instagram users, or if it would incorporate one of Instagram’s signature features, photo filters.
UPDATED: An Instagram spokesperson responded:
We don’t comment on rumors or our product road map.
