Reels’ videos have long been gaining more views than usual posts. That’s why almost all users upload Reels to Instagram. Bloggers on Instagram do it to promote themselves. However, users who have Instagram to communicate with friends use Reels for other purposes.
Many people use the Reels function in Instagram as an editor for videos. Because when you create Reels, you can stitch together multiple videos and add effects and music. Then save the result to your iPhone. You can’t even post it but save the Draft to your iPhone. Only Instagram has no function to save other people’s Reels.
