Reels Rolls Out New Content Discovery, Sharing Features

Instagram’s nascent TikTok competitor, Reels, has rolled out three updates to its content finding and sharing systems, and has released a list of the top 20 songs most popular with the app’s users.

New features include: an in-app browser that showcases newly added and trending songs, plus offers a curated For You section of songs based on user activity; a function that lets users save sounds to their own in-app library for use in videos; and the ability to send a DM sharing not one, but all of the videos that use a particular piece of music or other background sound.

“Reels is still new, but we’ve already been so inspired to see what people are doing with it,” a spokesperson for Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, said in a statement. “We know sounds and music can be a big source of inspiration to join a trend, and an opportunity to reach an audience, or even go viral, which is why we’re excited to see how people use today’s updates.”
