Instagram Reels Is Just TikTok For Basics. It'll Probably Be A Huge Hit
Instagram has announced today Instagram Reels: a new way to create and discover short, entertaining videos on Instagram.
In every conceivable way, Instagram Reels is worse than TikTok. But in all likelihood, that won’t stop the blatant clone from becoming a hit, says Mashable.
Facebook (Instagram’s parent company) released its copycat of the wildly popular short-form video app TikTok on August 5.

Reels invites you to create fun videos to share with your friends or anyone on Instagram. Record and edit 15-second multi-clip videos with audio, effects, and new creative tools.

Reels in Explore offers anyone the chance to become a creator on Instagram and reach new audiences on a global stage.
