Instagram Reels is a 15 to 30 seconds video clip maker feature on Instagram. Your followers or everyone in the Explore tab can view the reels you make, depending on the fact that your Instagram profile is private or public. Instagram lets you edit the video with music, AR effects, drawings, texts, and stickers, and are weaved in together to tell a story.
Instagram Reels became popular when Tiktok was banned in India. Now, Instagram has come up with a new video editing feature: Remix. While it might be a new feature on Instagram, just like Reels, this is a concept that has previously been introduced on Tiktok as ‘duets‘.

What is the Instagram Reels Remix Feature?
The new Instagram Reels Remix feature allows you to create your own take on Reels made by others. It allows users on Instagram to interact with other reels and ‘remix‘ them by creating their own versions of the reels, and upload them alongside the original ones.
Users can remix any Instagram Reel, as long as the creator of the reel has enabled the Remix feature. Instagram explains that the Remix feature is enabled by default for all new Reels you publish from a public account.
This new feature by Instagram is great for collaborations, reaction videos, and challenge participation. Many people have already started putting this new feature to max creativity.
