Keeping It Reel: How to Use Instagram Reels
Instagram has finally started rolling out its latest Reels feature to users around the world.
The Reels feature brings similar functionality to the Tiktok app (which has been banned in both India and Hong Kong) allows users to create videos on the app, add creative filters and music and then share it with their followers and more. This was confirmed by Vishal Shah, VP of Product, Facebook. Like Tiktok, users will be able to create 15 seconds video with popular songs, challenges or the current trends.
The latest feature allows users to shoot video, add filters and music which is available from Instagram's catalogue and share it beyond the platform. Another feature is that users will be able to share Reels in Explore and also on their personal feed. Instagram has not provided any monetisation methods as of now.
One important thing to note here is that the Reels feature has started rolling out to users but only a limited number of users have received the feature. If you still cannot see the feature on your Instagram app, we would recommend waiting it out since it will become available across the board very soon.
How to create Instagram Reels
1) Go to the Instagram camera and select Reels at the bottom
2) Tap on Audio option and select a song using the Instagram music library. You can use original audio by simply recording a Reel using the audio
3) Add AR Effect which will make your Reel interesting and set the timer as well to record any of your clips hands-free.
4) Users will also get an option to speed up or slow down part of the video or audio
