Instagram created the 15-60 seconds short videos this year, and they turned out to be a great success.

Reels is currently being used by an enormous percent of users on a daily basis, and since Reels are quite similar to TikTok’s videos, some users are even leaving the TikTok platform, since Instagram made it possible to scroll down endlessly through the videos.
