Instagram has announced its new feature ‘Reels’ in the app – which almost replicates the functionalities of TikTok. Earlier, the company had made it available only in Brazil and now expanding it to the users in Germany and France – with adding new features.
The Reels video allows people to create a 15-second or looping video clips. It can be set to music and mixed together from other clips. Similar to TikTok, the top Reels are featured in the Explore tab, improving the feed’s discovery. Instagram will also allow a user to share Reels in the main feed of the app, besides stories.
