Instagram is reportedly testing ways to turn video posts into reels

Instagram is reportedly testing a way to turn video posts into reels. The Meta-owned social media platform reportedly mentioned that the change is currently being tested with a number of users around the world and is part of Instagram’s plan to simplify videos on the app. A social media analyst also shared a screenshot on Twitter showing how users taking part in the test will see a prompt from the app that video posts will now be shared as Instagram Reels.

According to a TechCrunch report, citing an email sent to the publication by a Meta spokesperson, social media platform Instagram is currently testing a new app update that would turn video posts on the platform into Reels. .

The report added that in the email, the company’s spokesperson said, “We are testing this feature as part of our efforts to simplify and improve the video experience on Instagram.” The switch from the Meta-owned platform is said to be part of Instagram’s plan to simplify video content on the app.

Instagram is currently testing the feature that turns video posts into reels with select users only globally, the report cited. Social media analyst Matt Navarra also share a screenshot on the microblogging platform, Twitter, with a message saying “video posts are now being shared as reels”.

It can be assumed that people who are part of the worldwide test for Instagram will see this pop-up message. The prompt indicates that if your account is public and you share a video, users will be able to use the audio from the video to create their own reels. The posted message also adds that anyone can now create a remix with the user’s Reel and upload it as part of their remix. However, users have the choice to disable remixing from the settings.

Instagram has yet to confirm when the new feature that transforms video posts to Instagram Reels will roll out. The social media platform is also expected to reveal soon what will happen to video posts that already exist on the platform.
