Instagram Reels: How to Watch Reels on Instagram


Instagram Reels is the latest feature of the social media that is here to replace TikTok. Reels are 15-second videos that are exactly like TikTok videos. Now that TikTok is banned, and Instagram is already so popular, there’s a big void for Instagram to fill. Since the feature is still so new, a lot of people are wondering how to watch Instagram Reels. We don’t blame you, because Instagram has not made Reels as easy to spot as it’s done for Instagram Stories.

How to watch Instagram Reels

There are multiple ways to quickly and easily watch Instagram Reels. Here’s how you can do it easily.

  1. Open Instagram and browse your feed till you spot any Reels video. You will see the Reels icon on the bottom-left of the video. Tap that icon and it’ll take you to Reels only. The video will keep looping until you swipe down to watch more videos.
  2. An alternative way to watch Instagram Reels is to go to the Explore feed on Instagram by tapping the magnifying glass icon. You’ll see a giant Reels video at the top. Tap Reels and swipe down to watch more Reels videos.
  3. If you’ve posted Reels, you can also watch Reels by going to your profile page and tapping the Reels icon.

Those are the main ways through which you can watch Instagram Reels. The main differences between Reels and TikTok appears to be that Reels are limited to 15 seconds. TikTok let you upload slightly longer videos.
