We don't say it, but the stats do because the figures show that 2.3 billion people installed the app, with 100 million exclusively from the USA, thus enabling TikTok to become the main competitor of Instagram, which only has one billion downloads.

More than a month after the Government of India banned popular Chinese video-sharing application TikTok over security concerns, Facebook's Instagram officially launched Instagram Reels on August 5. This is a new Instagram feature that will help out people to record a 15-second video with audio.

Taking this new development into account, Instagram worked hard on this new platform, which was first tested in the fall of 2019 in Brazil, France, and Germany and released in India in July 2020.

(MENAFN - The Peninsula) IANS San Francisco - Amid uncertainties surrounding TikTok's business in the US, Facebook on Wednesday introduced Instagram Reels in the country that will allow people to create and discover short, entertaining videos. Let's look at what is Instagram Reels and how to use it?

Instagram Reels is new and is available in the explore section of Instagram or the story section where posts disappear after 24 hours. TikTok is owned by Beijing-based ByteDance The company now faces a deadline of September 15 to either sell its US operations to Microsoft Corp or face an outright ban. The app, which could be banned by US President Donald J Trump, has enjoyed huge success thanks to viral dance trends and challenges. In addition, users can save the Reels in a dedicated section and can use different effects as well. That's accessed by swiping from left-to-right on the main photo feed that appears whenever you open the Instagram app on your smartphone (there's also a small camera icon in the top left-hand corner that'll take you there too).

Once you are done shooting one clip, tap the time again and set the timer for the next clip or leave it as it is if you don't want to limit the second cut. There are a few other features that Reels won't have at launch.
