Instagram short-video service Reels coming to Facebook mobile apps

Thursday 30 September 2021 | 09:27 CET | News
Facebook is expanding the Instagram feature Reels to the Facebook Android and iOS mobile apps, offering a new way to post and watch short videos on the social network. First launched in August 2020 for Instagram, Reels allows users to record and edit 15-second videos with a range of audio and visual effects. The 'reels' can then be shared with followers or as a story, or be put to the wider social media audience through public accounts.
