Covid-19 has become a good reason for various social media platforms to bring its innumerable features. Instagram is one of them; which recently proved to be no less than other content sharing platforms. It was 21 November 2020 when it announced the launch of the latest update; branded content labels on the Reel.
In its statement, Instagram ensures that no matter what formatting style content creators use, upcoming features will allow them to reach a larger audience to improve the appearance of their content. Branded content creators or business owners are the main target of assistance with this update. In its official blog post, Instagram also explains that in the coming weeks this update to the Reel section will also be tested in its live feature.
Instagram further mentions that it will allow labeled content creators to add components ranging from using hashtags to adding locations, captions and mentions to their stories. This also includes video and audio sharing by the Business owner or its creators.
It seems that Instagram through its latest update will be lucky to get more users than before. This is because it will provide a video editing service similar to TikTok; which is considered prohibited by many countries including the United States.
Upcoming Instagram app reforms; reel recognition will allow you to create three to fifteen second video clips and will be effective in browse options. Adding or removing effects, editing, inserting audio and dubbing is possible, by swiping to the screen sharing options – before you upload the video. After you share a reel, it will be saved in a separate Reel option on your profile indefinitely and viewers can visit it whenever they want.
Works similarly to your regular Instagram story; Reels will be deleted after 24 hours if you share them with your friends via direct message, with groups, or even add them to your close friends’ stories. Thus, it acts like a regular Instagram story – reels will not be added to the explore section and will not be added to stories saved on your profile. Maybe for both; private and public account users to take advantage of this roll opportunity.
If your Reel is selected by Instagram to be seeded, a notification will appear on your phone saying that your Reel is now seeded. According to Instagram, it will help its users get access to original content.
You will be delighted to find content that is useful but fun. Don’t forget to like, comment and share the reel with your loved ones too.
