Instagram announces its own short video feature called Reels in India

Written by Punit

Just few days back, India had banned 59 Chinese Apps on the name of user data security concerns. Shocking was to see Tiktok on the list as it has a huge user-base in India. Many of the people have become influencers using the app and many companies had their ads on the same platform. If you don’t know, even Govt. of India also had an account on TikTok.

But as soon as the list came out to block the Video sharing app Tiktok, many of the other apps started taking advantage of this. One is a Mitron App, which also trended due to its source code being developed by a Pakistani developer group. The Mitron app soon gained 5 million downloads.

And now Instagram has pulled up his game by releasing a short video sharing category called Reels, where it allows you to exactly the same thing you could do with Tiktok.

How to create Instagram Reels –

  • Select Reels at the bottom of the Instagram camera.
  • Click on the Audio option and search for a song from the Instagram music library for your Reel.
  • You can also use your own original audio by simply recording a Reel with it just as TikTok.
  • You can add AR Effect to make your Reel interesting and different from others and also set the timer to record any of your clips hands-free.
  • There’s also an option to speed up or slow down part of the video or audio.
