Instagram is planning to make every video on the platform a Reel. This will help it reach a wider audience across Facebook and Instagram. The news comes from social media consultant Matt Navarra who has shared a screenshot that shows Meta’s plans for Instagram Reels.
Instagram is switching over all videos posted on the site to Reels. Reels will also allow users to add video effects, music, and remix them. Other people can download your Reels as part of their own remix and they can use your original audio as well.
However, since the change is only in testing, it is unclear whether it will be released to the public. It is also unclear what will happen to all the existing videos on the platform and whether you will be able to share longer videos again that stretch up to 10 minutes (or even 60 minutes for verified accounts).
