Instagram launches dedicated Reels tab
Instagram has launched a dedicated Reels tab for users in India that will replace the Explore tab. The new feature has been introduced to facilitate quicker access.
The team at Instagram had been testing the dedicated tab for Reels and the latest change will make it easier for people to discover new Reels creators and their videos in the application.
India is reportedly the first market to get the dedicated tab, and according to Instagram, this is due to the interest Reels has received in the country.
As per Mashable, this new tab will only show Reels, and will have an auto-playing video, a creation entry point that opens to the Reels camera and a sound on by default with a tap to toggle on or off.
The users can also access the camera directly from this tab.
The feature is now available in over 50 countries, including Brazil, Germany and France and the US.
