The American company Facebook has launched a TikTok-like Reels service on Instagram. This was announced on Wednesday, August 5, by TASS with reference to the company’s statement.
“Today we are introducing Instagram Reels, a new service for creating and viewing short entertainment videos on Instagram,” Facebook said in a statement.
It is noted that to record a 15-second video, you need to open the camera in the Instagram mobile application, and then select the appropriate function in the panel below. Various video editing tools and audio tracks from the track catalog are available to video authors, writes RNS. In addition, it is possible to record video with your own sound, which can then be made available to other users.
By analogy with TikTok, videos on Instagram Reels can be either private or available to all users of the social network. In addition, a ready-made video can be loaded into the application, the TV channel “360” notes.
The United States administration accuses TikTok’s management of promoting and transferring user data to the Chinese authorities. On August 3, US President Donald Trump announced that Microsoft or another US company must complete a deal to acquire TikTok by September 15. Otherwise, the social network will be blocked on the territory of the country, writes “Moscow 24”.
