What Is Instagram Reels?
What is Instagram Reels?
Instagram Reels is a brand-new feature to create instant fun and engaging video content.
It is remarkably similar to TikTok, where Instagram users can record and edit 15-second video clips set to music and share them to their Stories, IG Feed, and the new Reels tab on a user’s profile.
This will only show here once you have posted your first Reel.
How To Post on Reels
When it comes to Reels its amazingly easy to use and edit, adding music, different speeds, effects and timers. You can record or select a video from your library to add to the reel.
Just click the camera icon at the top left of your device the same as you would to create a story.
With the launch of this new feature Instagram stories have also had an upgrade giving you 3 main options all in the same place.
Once your post is live it has the chance to be shown in the featured section on the explore page of Instagram.
According to Instagram, “If your reel is featured in Explore, you’ll receive a notification. Featured reels are a selection of public reels chosen by Instagram to help you discover original content we hope will entertain and inspire you.”
We are yet to see any challenges coming across yet but I’m pretty sure it wont be long before we see a trend of Reel dance and fitness challenge so famous on TikTok.
