How to make Remix Reels on Instagram

Remix on Reels basically allows users to interact with other reels, create their own versions of it and upload it alongside the original one.

Instagram explained that the Remix feature is enabled by default for all new Reels you publish from a public account.

Instagram’s new Remix option on Reels is now live on both Android and iOS. This new feature, which is exactly like ‘Duets’ on TikTok, allows you to create your own take on Reels made by others.

TikTok’s Duets is extremely popular and thus it is not surprising to see Instagram add its own version of it. This will also help Instagram score some extra points in places like India where TikTok still remains banned.

Remix on Reels basically allows users to interact with other reels, create their own versions of it and upload it alongside the original one.

Instagram explained that the Remix feature is enabled by default for all new Reels you publish from a public account. To enable Remix on older Reels, you need to tap on the three-dot menu and click on “Enable Remixing”.

Now, if you want to remix someone else’s Reel, you have to ask them to enable remixing. Also, you can turn off Remix at any point in time for all Reels from the Settings menu or do it individually for a particular reel by clicking on the three-dot menu and turning it off.

As someone creating Reels you have full control over whether you want to allow others to Remix it or not. But for starters, it is switched on by default for all public profiles. This has been done to give other users more clips to create Remixes with.

And, if someone does make a Remix of your Reel, you will be notified.

How to create a Remix Reel

- Find a Reel you want to remix.

- Click on the three-dot menu on the Reel you’ve selected and click on “Remix this Reel”.

- You will see the screen split into two - one side will have the original Reel and the other will have the new one you are about to create.

- Start recording and creating your own Reel. Your recording will be side-by-side to the original reel.

- Once you are done recording you can change the volume of the original Reel, your own recorded audio and even add a voiceover if you want. To change the volume you need to tap on the slider icon on top and to add a voiceover tap the microphone icon.

- Once you are done editing, post your remixed Reel.
