How to Delete a Video Loop From Instagram Notes

Instagram Notes has a new feature that lets you upload a 2-second video loop alongside text or music when sharing your thoughts and daily updates. Although video loops are designed to vanish from Instagram DM after 24 hours just like any other note, if you wish to remove a video note you’ve shared recently, the following post should help you get that done.

How to delete a video loop from Instagram Notes

When you upload a video loop to Instagram Notes, it’ll stay visible to your followers or close friends for up to 24 hours. But if you don’t wish to share the video loop for that long and want to remove it before it expires, you can do that by following these steps. 

  1. Open the Instagram app on your phone and tap on the Messages icon at the top right corner. You can also access the screen by swiping leftwards on the app’s home feed.
  2. When the Instagram DM shows up, tap on Your note at the top. In the overflow menu that appears, tap on Delete Note
  3. Your note will now be deleted along with the video loop you added to it. 


What is a video loop on Instagram Notes?

Video loop is a new feature available that’s part of Instagram Notes; it’s essentially a shorter version of Instagram Stories that your friends can interact with via messages. You can create a note with a 2-second video to support the text note or music you post as thoughts and this video will be played in a loop for as long as it’s visible.

People can react to your video loop with text, stickers, photos, videos, GIFs, and even audio messages. These replies will be visible inside the dedicated DM threads you have with the senders.

My video note no longer appears on Instagram. Why?

When you post a video loop note to your Instagram DM, it will be visible to your followers or close friends for up to 24 hours. If the video note you uploaded recently no longer appears on the Direct Messages screen, it’s probably because the note had run out of 24-hour validity. When a video note expires, neither you nor others will be able to view or access it on Instagram. 

Additionally, video notes may vanish if you remove them personally from your Instagram DM or replace them with a new note. 

Can you post multiple video notes on Instagram?

No. When you attempt to create a new note with an existing video note already uploaded, the new note will replace any current note you’ve shared on Instagram. 

That’s all you need to know about deleting a video loop from Instagram Notes.
