Loved TikTok Duets? Instagram Reels Remix is the Same; Here’s How to Use

Ever since Tiktok became famous for its short videos around various categories like dance, fun, comedy, education, tech, social message, and a whole lot more, every other platform is trying to integrate a Tiktok like feature within their app. Instagram is one such platform that has not only introduced Reels (a TikTok-like platform), but it’s actually doing great.

Instagram is aggressively trying to build Reels as a platform for creators, as they have made a dedicated Reels tab on their App, and also rolled out it for Instagram Lite. Another such step by Instagram is “Reels Remix” which is again a copied feature from TikTok, “TikTok Duets” to be precise. It lets a user interact with other clips on the platform – allowing them to create new versions or adding new angles to the original uploaded Reels clip. Let’s quickly see how we can use this new feature.

Note: Reels uploaded before 31st March 2021, don’t have the remixing feature enabled by default. You need to manually enable it by clicking the same 3 dots menu and click on Enable Remixing. Or if you want to remix someone else’s old reel, then you need to ask them to enable remixing.
