Instagram Reels, the photo-sharing service’s rival TikTok, began rolling out to users on Wednesday. It allows users to create and discover short videos on the Facebook owned platform. The reels can be made up of several clips recorded one by one or downloaded from your phone’s gallery. Each coil can last up to 15 seconds in total.

There are a variety of functions that creators can use to create coils. It is possible to use Instagram’s music library or original audio, a variety of AR effects, and the ability to change the speed of a video. Plus, Instagram provides a timer and countdown timer to help you shoot hands-free, and tips for aligning objects from previous clips if you’re using more than one in a video.
Users with a public account can share a reel to a dedicated space in the Explore tab space. This is also where they can be viewed. Some celebrities, including the Star Wars star John boyega, started creating content using the tool. Reels becomes available to users as a free update to the Instagram app.
