One of Instagram's many exciting features is the ability to create Remix videos. The feature essentially lets you react to someone else's reel, or collaborate to create something exciting; hence the name “Remix”. So far, Instagram allowed this only on select Instagram Reels videos and that sort of limited its use case. Now, there's an update that is bound to make content creators a lot happier.

On Instagram, you will now be able to create Remix videos with any video posted publicly. Yes, ANY video! As long as the profile and its video is visible to the public, you can create a Remix video with the same. Hence, you can now collaborate with someone else's video in any format; whether it's a Reels or a long-format video.

Similar to Remix for Instagram Reels, this new feature will let you embed all AR stickers and filters for the same. The original video will play in one side of the frame whereas the other side of the window will show the camera viewfinder. You can either record your Remix directly with the phone's camera or upload an existing one. You can then add text, stickers, and then share it publicly.
