Instagram has released its new service in India called the Instagram Reels. This new feature lets users create short videos and post them just like before but with a lot of new effects and filters, much like TikTok.
The feature has been rolled out to all the users in India and all you need to do is update the app and you will see that feature working on your phone. To provide a wide variety of songs, Instagram has partnered with prominent music labels. You can select any song from the vast list and create short videos and post them on Instagram.
So, if you are feeling bad after the TikTok ban in India, here is all you need to know about how to use Instagram Reels to create short videos like TikTok.
