Remix is a feature recently launched by Instagram and allows the user to do duets on Reels. The new tool allows users to record reactions, imitate scenes, create their own versions for platform classics, respond to their friends in an unusual way, all with the video being shown alongside the original.
The tool is a way for Instagram to encourage interaction between content creators, working in the same way as TikTok duets. The function is now available for Android and iOS devices.
How to use Remix on Instagram Reels
Step 1: Open the Instagram app and click on the Reels icon at the bottom of the screen. When watching a video you like, tap on the three dots icon, also located in the bottom corner of the screen.
Step 2: Select the option “Remix this video from Reels” and close the resource presentation pop-up.
Step 3: With that, the camera of your cell phone will be opened for you to record the scene next to the selected video. To start recording, tap the camera icon at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: Here, it is worth remembering that it is possible to record small portions until the video has the same length as the original. During the creation process, you can use the editing features of the platform, such as stickers, bookmarks and phrases that will be on the clip. Remix mode also brought two new creative features. To access them, click on the settings icon, as shown in the image below.
Step 5: The first novelty is the audio mix, which allows you to individually increase or decrease the volume of the two videos. This even makes it possible for the user to reduce the sound of one of the clips to the maximum, leaving it muted.
Step 6: To use the other creation tool, named “Voice-over”, return to the editing screen and click on the microphone. Through this mode, it is possible to record your voice or sounds of the environment at the time the video is being edited.
Step 7: Once the duet has been made and all necessary edits have been made, select the “Share” option. Type something in the caption and confirm the operation to publish your Remix on Instagram.
