Meet Remix, a new Instagram Reels tool

Instagram comes up with several new features frequently and one of the tool’s last bets was on a direct competition model with TikTok. Reels was launched last year and, like the competing social network, aims to publish quick videos, with dances and voiceovers that end up going viral.

The Instagram tool has many features similar to TikTok, but it makes evident the feud between the two. So much so that content recycling, when a user reuses videos from the other social network, does not please Instagram, which has already warned the creators of the platform that the network’s algorithm will no longer promote videos that are republish material from the competitor.


To avoid this reuse, Reels is added with new tools. The most recent is the Video Remix, which allows you to record a video together. That is, the user can react, respond to friends, or make a new version of some trend while the original video is shown on the side.
