Remix lets users create new Reels to respond to a Reel posted by someone else and then place it alongside the original Reel. It allows the content creators to collaborate with others and create new entertaining mini clips.

  1.  Find an Instagram Reel video that you wish to Remix.
  2. Tap on the three-dots menu in the lower-right corner under the Share button.
  3.  Select the ‘Remix this Reel’ option that appears in the menu that pops up from the bottom.
  4. The screen will split into two where the original video appears on the left side. Instagram will place the video on the right after you shoot it or add it from your camera roll. Press the record button to start filming your video.
  5. After capturing, you’ll be able to preview your Remix by pressing the relevant button.
  6. From the Preview window, you can go ahead and edit your Reel’s sound, add a voiceover or stickers, and write or doodle on it.
  7. Once completed, Click Next.
  8. You’ll see the Posting page. Here you can write a caption for your Reel, add a location, or tag people. After that, press Share.

The new reel will be posted as a collaboration video on your profile and tag it as a ‘Remix with name’ – the person who posted the original Reel. Their username also appears on top of the original Reel in the collab video.
