Instagram parent company has released notification regarding addition of a new feature called ‘remix’ in Instagram reels. This new feature offers a way to record reels video alongside a video from another user.
It is quite similar to TikTok’s duet feature, which lets users to interact and make content with another person’s video content while creating their own. TikTok was banned in India in June last year.
This new feature is aimed at making the platform more connected and less passive where more users can collaborate with each other and make content for their Instagram reels.
