Instagram launches Reels, its attempt to keep you off TikTok

  • Similar to TikTok, Reels lets people create short-form videos set to music that can be shared with friends and followers and discovered while browsing the app.
  • Robby Stein, Instagram’s product director, said that while TikTok popularized the short video format, the two products are different.
  • Stein said that his team received “very similar feedback when we launched Stories.” But Instagram Stories quickly surpassed Snapchat in daily users and has continued to be a massively successful product.
  • More than 50 percent of people use Instagram’s Explore page in a month, Stein said, and now there’ll be a dedicated hub for Reels.
  • Musicians looking to use the app as a place to make a song go viral “can add original audio by just recording and that can live on later,” Stein said, adding that “other people could use it and remix it,” but the actual song can’t be uploaded directly.

  • In the days since the Trump administration signaled it was "looking at" banning TikTok and other Chinese-owned platforms, the app has exploded with a mix of fears and funny videos about the potential action.
  • In one video set against sound from a popular fire drill scene in The Office, a TikTok creator imitates other influencers and users in her comments panicking about Thursday's glitch and a potential ban, while Michael Scott's voice screams "Everyone stay calm" in the background.
