After the ban of popular video sharing platform Tiktok, Instagram introduced a new feature called Reels. Instagram Reels is strikingly similar to TikTok as it allows users to record 15 to 30-second videos set to music. Instagram Reels has been there for a while now, and it recently got a new feature known as ‘Remix.’
The all-new remix feature of Instagram reels lets users upload their reels next to another that already exists. TikTok already has a similar feature known as Duets. TikTok’s duets allow users to react to or interact with another person’s video content while creating their own.
Now Instagram got the same feature, but it’s called ‘Remix’. Instagram’s new Remix option on Reels is now available for both Android and iOS. According to Instagram, the Remix feature is enabled by default for all new Reels you publish. However, one needs to enable the Remix feature for older reels manually.
