#Facebook releases its second attempt to copy rival #TikTok by leveraging #Instagram’s popularity
Instagram launched its short-form video feature, Reels, broadly on Wednesday, in an effort to compete with the rapidly-growing TikTok.
Instead of operating as a separate app, Reels can be found within the Instagram app itself by selecting “Reels” at the bottom of the Instagram camera. Reels allows users to create 15-second clips, like TikTok, and share them publicly or with friends within the Instagram app.
The editing software operates much like TikTok. Users can overlay audio, select augmented reality effects and upload video clips in a similar manner.
Reels was launched in Brazil last November and Instagram expanded it to France and Germany in June and India in July. It’s now available in the U.S. and several other markets.
