Well it looks like the makers of Instagram are revamping their app by partnering with Facebook to soon feature videos.

According to various reports, Instagram will add video to its popular photo-sharing service. The announcement is expected at the Facebook event being held tomorrow night. Facebook, which bought Instagram for $1 billion in April 2012, sent mysterious invites to an event late last week via snail mail. “A small team has been working on a big idea. Join us for coffee and learn about a new product,” the press invitation read.

Details on how the service will work are slim. Though, Matthew Keys, the former social media editor at Reuters, reports that the feature would allow users to upload between five to 10 seconds of video.

The service would be a direct competitor to Twitter’s Vine app, which allows users to upload and share six-second videos.

So expect to see some more changes to your Instagram account as it’s team is continuing to improve upon the app.¬†“We want to create meaningful ways to help you discover new and interesting accounts and content while building a self-sustaining business at the same time,” Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said.

The Facebook event begins at 10 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 20. Select news stations will have reports on this event so stay tuned.
