We all know that Instagram Reels is the newest feature on the app, but what does that mean for users and businesses? Here are some quick facts about Instagram Reels that will help you understand the new tool and its potential!
What are Instagram Reels?
Instagram Reels are short, fun videos that you can create and share on Instagram. They’re similar to Stories, but they’re different in a few key ways. For one, you can use Reels to create longer videos, up to 30 seconds. And unlike Stories, which disappear after 24 hours; Reels stay on your profile forever (or until you delete them).
You can also share Reels with your followers, or on Instagram’s Explore page for all users to see. And like other types of content on Instagram, you can use hashtags and locations to make your Reels more discoverable.
To create a reel, open the Instagram app and tap on the “Reels” icon at the bottom of the screen. Then, select the “Create a Reel” option. From there, you can choose how long you want your video to be (up to 30 seconds), and then start filming. You can add music from Instagram’s library of songs, or use your audio if you prefer.
Once you’ve recorded your video, you can edit it using Instagram’s editing tools. These include filters, effects, and text overlays. Once you’re happy with your reel, tap “Share” to post it to your profile or story, or send it to specific friends or groups via direct message.
How to use Instagram Reels
Instagram Reels is a new feature on the platform that allows users to create and share short videos. Here’s how to use it:
First, open the Instagram app and go to your feed. At the top of the screen, you’ll see a new icon for Reels. Tap on it to open the Reels camera.
