    Do you like watching Instagram Reels in your free time or for entertainment? People not only like sharing pictures and stories on the app but also love making Reels. Introduced in August 2020, Reels is used to create and discover short, entertaining videos on the application. As per the information provided by the social networking platform, Reels allows you to record and edit short videos up to 60 seconds on the Instagram Camera. You can even add effects and music to your Instagram reel or use your own original audio. However, it can be noted that some Instagram accounts may be able to see reels, but they will not be able to record them.

    Once you create an Instagram Reel, you can share it with your followers on Feed, and, if you have a public account, it makes it available to the wider audience through a new space in Explore. "Reels in Explore offers anyone the chance to become a creator on Instagram and reach new audiences on a global stage," Instagram said. If you are new to Instagram and are not much aware about Reels, then here is how you can record it.
