Instagram Launches Reels in over 50 countries

Instagram has finally expanded its TikTok-like reels feature globally.  According to the company, Reels now lives in more than 50 countries including the US, UK, Japan and Australia.

The company said in a blog post, "Reels gives people new ways to express themselves, learn more about who they love on Instagram, and help anyone with the ambition of becoming a producer  Does. "

Instagram began testing the reels in Brazil in November last year.  After remaining silent about the extension for six months, the Facebook-owned company brought the facility to France and Germany.  Soon after TikTok was banned by the Indian government, among other Chinese apps, Instagram rapidly expanded the feature to India.

Unexpectedly, Instagram has expanded into the US at a time when no one knows what the future holds for Tiktok in the country.  The US government is forcing TikTok to sell its American works or face a ban.

For those unaware, Reels lets users create and share 15-second clips on Instagram.  The feature has dedicated sections in Profile and Explore.  You can find new reels from the exploration section.

Reels provides clean functionality, including the Instagram music library, AR effects, countdown timers, the option to align past clips, and the ability to search and use lyrics to manipulate audio or video speeds.

It is worth noting that you can use reels regardless of the privacy settings of your Instagram account.  As you would expect, Instagram will not include your private reels in the Public Explore section.  If you are using a personal Instagram account, only your followers will see your clip.  You also have the option to share the reel like a story that disappears after 24 hours.
