How to post accelerated video in Instagram Stories with the InShot app

The InShot application allows you to edit videos to add the advanced speed effect to scenes. Available for free for iPhone (iOS) and for Android phone, it allows you to send videos to the Instagram Stories where images and audio are played in an accelerated way. The feature is ideal for creating funny scenes and works as an alternative to the 15-second limit of Stories mode - the accelerated effect reduces the time of the original video.
