Instagram has launched a new tab for Reels in India, in which users can see only Reels videos. Let us tell you, India is the first country where a separate tab dedicated to Reels has been introduced in Instagram. According to Instagram, this decision has been taken in view of the increasing popularity of Reels in India. After this change, you will now see the Reels tab instead of the Explore tab in Instagram. Earlier, you could see Reels videos only in the Explore tab, but seeing the increasing popularity of the feature, the company has launched a separate tab for it. The Explore tab is now located at the top right of the app. As everyone knows, the Indian government had banned 59 Chinese apps in India two months ago, of which the most popular app was TikTok. Since the TikTok ban, different developers in India were offering alternatives to TikTok, meanwhile Instagram introduced the in-app Reels feature which is a short video feature similar to TikTok.

Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram Tell The reason for introducing a separate tab for Reels on Instagram is the growing momentum of this feature in the country. Let us tell you, a month ago there was news that the Facebook-owned company is working on this tab for Reels, but now the company has started rolling it out for all users. Before the tab, reels videos were available only in the Search tab.

The dedicated Reels tab is located in the navigation bar at the bottom of the app, where you previously found the Explore/Search/Discovery button. By clicking on the Reels button, users will get to see random reels videos where they can watch one video after another by swiping.

Let us tell you, through the Reels feature, users can creatively record 15 second video and audio and edit it with visual effects. Instagram launched this feature in India two months ago, when the Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps including TikTok in India.

However, many users are not happy with the introduction of Instagram’s Reels tab, who have made their reaction public through Twitter.
