As it seems, Instagram wants to add a lot of features to its popular app in order to compete with TikTok. In this regard, a new feature is going to be added to Instagram soon, during which all video posts will be converted into Reels.
Instagram is currently one of the most popular social networks in the world. Although this app has many contacts around the world and has been able to attract the positive opinion of users for several years, with the arrival of Tik Tok and its special and unique capabilities, Instagram gradually realized that the messaging application has a general weakness that they should
Instagram started very early but instead of appearing different, it tried to take the path that Tik Tok was able to attract the positive opinion of users. One of these features was the addition of Rails to this social network, which allows the user to create short 15-second videos with the help of various editing tools and share them with other users.
Since Rails is a relatively Considered new, Instagram needs to accommodate it among users, and in this regard, it wants to convert all video posts that someone shares on their page into Rails. In this way, users will have more interaction with this name and will be well acquainted with the purpose of its design and its capabilities. We can make the experience of watching videos on Instagram a better and simpler process." The Rails feature was first made available to Instagram users in America in August 2020, and very soon it was met with a unique welcome from users. In this regard, the company decided to make it available to many other users.
This The screenshot above shows that video posts will now be shared as rails. Instagram hopes that by doing this, posts will be visited much more than before and will create more interaction. Because, in general, Rails' philosophy was that the user could apply a lot of personalization and changes to the video. As a result, when a video has many effects, many musics with different effects can be put on it and..., it will naturally cause many interactions.
Of course, this feature is currently under testing and It is not yet clear when the company plans to officially release it to its users. Maybe, like the first time, the users of the United States will have access to it first, and then we will see it available to all other users. We also don't know if users will still be able to share videos up to 10 minutes long (up to 60 minutes for verified accounts). The social network is not for image sharing as the company has shifted its focus from that side to developers, video, shopping and messaging. It remains to be seen how many years this new policy change can keep Instagram successful.
