Instagram Reels Launched
Reels will be available on both Android and iOS, but for a start, it will only be limited for users in Brazil, where it is called Cenas
Instagram’s Reels lets a user create 15-second video clips which they can lip-sync with music and then share the same in their Instagram stories.
Users will be able to access Reels from within the Instagram app just like other features such as Boomerang, Superzoom, and Live.
Users will be able to find Reels right alongside the Boomerang and Superzoom features.
Instagram is also adding some editing tools, like timed captions so that words appear in certain scenes, and a ghost overlay option for lining up transitions so they look fluid. So, once a short clip is created, a user can then share it as their story or simply send it to a friend. And, if shared publicly, it also will be eligible to appear in the Top Reels section of the Explore tab.
