Meta-owned Instagram has been working day in and day out to give the best-in-class user experience. By 2025, there will be 1.44 billion active Instagram users, which will be 31.2 percent of all internet users worldwide. To meet that goal and keep up with the competition, Instagram has been testing new waters. This time Instagram is testing a way that can change video posts into reels. If you are an Instagram user, you would definitely want to read more about this update, right? So keep on reading.
Instagram is testing what new feature?
This new update is currently in its testing phase, where Instagram has made it accessible to only a handful of users across the world. This new change is said to simplify the use of videos on the platform. A source has revealed that an email was sent from the spokesperson of Instagram to TechCrunch. The email contained the information about the feature where all user-posted videos would be converted into reels.
An analyst who seems to be a part of the testing team also shared a screenshot on Twitter that further reveals the prompt message that informs the users about this change “Video Posts are now shared as a reel.” Below are the three changes that will be seen in this update:
- If the user’s account is public, then every video they post will be a reel.
- Other users will be able to use your original audio in their videos.
- Other users will also be able to make a remix with your reel and will also have the option to download it as part of the remix. But if a user is not comfortable with the remixing feature, they have the choice to turn off remixing in the settings.
Instagram is now making EVERY video a Reel
