TikTok’s ban in India unfurls the horizon of Instagram Reels

Instagram Reels will soon become the new trend taking over the popularity of TikTok.

Several Chinese apps have been banned By the Indian Government due to security concerns, and popular video making app TikTok is one of those apps.

To those who are missing this app badly, here is good news for you all.

What’s that? Soon you can access Instagram Reels in India to create funny videos.

The app which is successfully launched in countries like- Brazil, France and Germany, is now being tested to come up with an updated version for countries like India.

But are you going to access Reels through an app?

Well, the answer is no.

 Those who are using Instagram will be able to access Reels as an additional feature. Just like TikTok, even Reels will allow you to create 15 seconds audio enabled video. Furthermore, if you wish to edit your video, you will be able to do that as well with specific editing tools offered alongside the feature.

Want to share those videos with your friends?

You can do that too, as there will be a dedicated space for it on the profile page under the explore section. So even if someone is not your follower will be able to watch those videos make it viral in no time.

The onset of Reels in India perfectly synchronizes with the ban on TikTok, clearing the road for it to take over the market. But not to be forgotten, Instagram has to compete with several other video-sharing apps in India like Mitron, Chingari and Roposo, whose popularity increased soon after the ban on TikTok was declared.

But Facebook’s recent deal with India’s popular music companies like – Zee Music, T-series, Saregama and Yash Raj Films, will allow its users to enjoy the famous Bollywood songs and this by itself is a good reason to attract maximum users towards Reels. Just wait for some more time to create real videos on Reels.
