Audio: In the Instagram music library, you could search for a song or music you wish. Also, you could add your own audio by filming a reel. If you acquire a public profile, people could make reel videos with your audio or music by selecting the “Use Audio” option from your video. Always ensure to have licenses to use the sound for your business or brand.
Countdown And Timer: Set the time freely to film any video clips. If a user clicks the record button, a countdown option appears before filming starts for the specific time you chose. It helps a lot for creators and small businesses to come up with creative ideas.
AR Effects: You could choose an effect from many options to create your reel video like Snapchat. These stunning effects are introduced by the internal team of Instagram and various creators across the world. Also, your brand could make different AR effects to promote the events and products.
Align: Continue your line from your previous recordings to help your reel video make a seamless transition.

Share Instagram Reels
Brands could share with their fans and showcase the diverse, huge Instagram community with reels on Explore.
If you have a private account: Your reel video contents obey your privacy settings on the platform. Though there are many brand accounts on the platform, you could share them with your main feed so that your fans can get your reels quickly. Other users can’t use your unique audio from the reels, and the audience can’t share your reel videos with different audiences who do not follow you.
If you have a public account: Your business could share the reels to a particular space on the Explore page, where it acquires a vast opportunity to get by most of the audience on the Instagram community. Also, you could share your reel’s videos with your fans by uploading them to your main feed. If you share reel videos with specific hashtags, effects, or songs, your Instagram reel might appear on target pages when someone taps on that hashtag, effect, or song. So, be safe at all times.
Move a reel to the share screen if it’s ready. Here, you could save a draft, add captions, hashtags, change the picture, and tag other profiles. After uploading your reels on Instagram, it appears in the reels tab on your profile, where every user could get the reel videos you have shared. Also, you can share your reels to your main feed, where you can delete them later if you need.
Whether you acquire a private or public account, you could share your reel video to your close friends, direct message, or story. If you worked out this, your reel video behaves like a standard story – it won’t be shared to reels in the Explore page, it won’t show up on your primary brand profile, and it will disappear after a day from the time of posting.
