July 22 (Portaltic/EP) –
Instagram seeks to promote creative content on the platform and for this it has expanded the options offered the ‘remixes’, that is, the short video (‘reel’) that a user creates by attaching their recording to that of another creator on the social network, with new designs, templates and recording modes.
These ‘remixes’ show the two recordings simultaneously, with the original short video on the left and the new user-made one on the right. This design is going to introduce new options, so users can opt for a green screen, a horizontal or vertical split screen or a reaction view from image to image.
It will also be possible to embed the user’s video after the original, to be played next. And in addition to the videos, users will be able to combine public photos, a novelty that will arrive in the coming weeks,
The novelties of the ‘remix’ are completed with new templates and dual recordingwhich allows you to use the front and rear cameras at the same time, such as it’s a statement.
Likewise, and to give greater prominence to short videos, Instagram has reported that any recording shorter than 15 minutes will automatically be shared as a ‘reel’. It is a change that will only affect new videos.
These videos, in addition, if they are shared from a public accountmay appear in recommendationsas long as they are less than 90 seconds long.
