(Reuters) - Facebook's picture sharing app Instagram is updating its "Explore" section to add video channels that will appear in a feed according to users' preferences.

The feature will have a personalized channel called "videos you might like" that will collect videos from across Instagram's global community and also will include a "Featured" column highlighting videos on specific topics, Instagram said.

For now, the upgrade will only be available in the United States, Instagram said on Thursday.
