We’re thrilled to present Instagram Reels, a brand-new website that allows users to create and discover humorous short videos on Instagram at

Reels inspires you to create enjoyable videos that you may share with your friends and post on Instagram. It is possible to capture and edit 15-second multi-clip videos with new effects, audio, and creative tools. If you have a public account at, you may share  Instagram reels with both your Feed followers and the broader Instagram community through a new Explore area too.

With Reels in Explore at, anyone can create on Instagram and connect with new audiences around the globe.

How it operates

Putting Together Reels

Tap Reels from the menu at the bottom of the Instagram camera. A variety of creative editing options will appear on the left side of your screen to help you create your reel. These possibilities include:

Audio: To locate a song, browse Instagram’s music collection. You can also record a reel with your own original audio. When you submit a reel with original audio, your audio will be credited to you. If you have a public account, anyone can use your audio by selecting to “Use Audio” from your reel at
AR Impacts: Select from a wide range of effects in our effect library, created by worldwide creators and Instagram, to record several films at different effect
Timer and Countdown: Set the timer so you can record any of your clips hands-free. When you press record, a 3-2-1 countdown will show up, and the recording will begin at the time you choose,
Align: Arrange items from your prior clip in a line before recording your next to help with seamless transitions for scenarios like switching up your look or include new friends in your reel.
Speed: Choose which part of the audio or video to play at a faster or slower pace. You might use this to make slow motion films or keep a beat.


Reels can be uploaded as videos from your collection, recorded in one long clip, or recorded in numerous clips at once. Record the first clip while holding down and depressing the capture button. A progress indicator will show at the top of the screen while you record. Put an end to each clip by stopping the recording.

At, Reels enables you to share content with your followers and show up to Explore’s sizable and varied Instagram community.

You can upload your reel to a designated section of Explore if your account is public, allowing other Instagram users to find and watch it. You can share your reel with your followers by adding it to your Feed. Reels that you post on with particular music, hashtags, or effects might also appear on particular pages when a user clicks on one of those elements.

Reels respects your privacy settings on Instagram if you have a private account. You can share your reel on Feed so that it is just viewable to your followers. No one may utilise the original audio from your reels, and sharing them with anyone who are not followers is not allowed at

Once your reel is ready, go to the share screen to tweak the cover photo, add a description and hashtags, tag friends, and save a draft. Once you’ve shared your reel, it will be visible to everyone on a separate Reels tab on your profile. Your reel will appear on your main profile grid if you also post to your Feed , albeit you have the option to have it removed.

If you have a public or private account, you can share your reel via direct message with your Story, your close friends, and others. If you decide to do this, your reel will behave just like a regular Story; it won’t appear on your profile, it won’t be shared to Reels in Explore, and it will disappear from after a day.

In order to make it easier for you to discover original content that we believe will inspire and amuse you, Instagram has chosen a selection of public reels, also known as highlighted reels.
