Instagram Announces New Features - Expands Reels To 90 Seconds
In a blog post, Instagram announced new features that will expand Reels from three to 90 seconds and add AI-powered captions. Some of these features aren’t yet live but are in the works. Here are a few highlights. Instagram Reels will synchronize video clips to the beats of your favorite song. The feature was inspired by YouTube and will allow up to 10 minutes of video. In addition, the new feature will be monetized in some way, with the ability to sell adverts and ad links appearing below each video.
Originally, Instagram Reels were inspired by Tiktok and worked better on the platform. YouTube quickly copied the format and launched YouTube Shorts, its version of Reels. And it’s still a fun way to share videos with followers.
In addition to expanding Reels to 90 seconds, the platform is allowing creators to publish videos longer than the existing 60-second limit. While many users have complained about the new restriction, Instagram is attempting to keep the app as simple and easy to use as possible. In response to this feedback, the company has begun rolling out a new algorithm that prioritizes original content over Meta. This change should increase the quality of content on the platform, which should ultimately benefit its users.
In addition to the new Reels feature, the company has updated its programming hub. Creator Lab also features lessons on creating content and building a community. The new resource center contains 18 videos that are up to five minutes long. There are also new tutorials for creating videos for Instagram. Ultimately, the goal is to give creators the knowledge they need to grow their brands.
Business Reels And Added Captions
Instagram is also testing out a shopping feature for Reels. Businesses can now tag products while creating their Reels so that users can buy, save, or learn more about them. Creators can also add a ‘Branded Content’ tag to their Reels so that users can see the content that is paid for by brands. Those who want to make more money off of their videos can also opt into subscriptions. These subscriptions are currently available to selected users but should be available to everyone shortly.
Added captions are another new feature. Users will receive notifications when they watch a Story, letting them know that the captions can be translated. Currently, captions only work in English, but this will change in the future. Brands can add clickable links to their bio, but only if they are verified. This feature is also available for user profiles and news feeds. In the meantime, content creators can still include captions in their posts.
Creators can now search businesses and places within the app. They can search for prices, directions, and public posts with the business’s location marked. Those looking for tips on how to maximize Instagram can benefit from these new features. These are just some of the new features Instagram has announced. Hopefully, the platform will continue to evolve to give users more ways to make more money through their content. In addition to Reels, creators and businesses can also use Instagram’s analytics product to monitor their audience and make improvements.
AI-Powered Automatic Captions
The Instagram AI is rolling out captions for videos in 16 different languages. Initially, captions will only appear for those who are watching the video on mute. But soon, they’ll be available in all languages. The new feature is part of the AI that Instagram introduced two years ago, and will help content creators spread their message and reach their audience.
The new feature enables users to add captions to short videos. It’s a great step forward for the accessibility of Instagram videos. This technology will soon be available in 16 languages and will enable captions to appear on videos of up to 90 seconds. However, captioning on Instagram is still not as accurate as it can be, and it will only make your business look unprofessional. But it’s better to have captions than nothing at all.
In the coming months, Instagram will also allow users to sell their products using the affiliate selling option. Currently, it allows influencers to promote brands’ products. These partnerships require brand approval and are monitored closely. With this new feature, the process will be more seamless. The feature will allow influencers to discover new products and share them on their account to earn commissions for the purchases they make.
