Instagram Reels: these are the types of audio you can use

Instagram's features are constantly being updated, with new features being added and old ones discontinued. In our “Instagram Guides,” we’ll look at Instagram, explain its new and old features, and show you how to get the most out of the platform for your marketing strategy. Today: Instagram Reels: these are the types of audio you can use.

Instagram Reels are short videos that users can create for their followers. You can record a reel with your own original audio, with the original audio of another reel creator, or with music from the Instagram music library. Use the audio tool in Instagram Reels to do this.

Are there rules about original audio?

When you share a reel with your original audio, your username will be shown. If you use the music of someone else in your audio. Then Instagram will change the audio description to that artist's username and song.

It´s the best, if the original audio is created by you, in a reel you recorded or in a video you uploaded.

If you post a reel in a public account, anyone on Instagram can create a reel with your original audio. If you have a private account, no one can create a reel with your original sound.

Why was I notified that my reel was added to an audio page?

If Instagram determines that your original audio contains licensed music or audio, they automatically tag it with a note that includes the artist's name and song title. Your reel is then added to that song's audio page so more Instagram users can find it there.

What happens if the artist/song credit is wrong?

If Instagram got your audio wrong, you can remove your reel from the audio page. Tap the three dots at the bottom of the reel and then tap "Remove from Audio Page." Your audio will then be reassigned to you so that it says "Original Audio" next to your username.

How do I add a voiceover to my reels?

You can add a voiceover to your reel before you publish it. Here's how to add a voiceover to your reel:

1. In the first step, record your reel and then tap the right arrow at the bottom.

2. Then tap the microphone icon at the top.

3. Tap or hold the record button to record the audio track that you want to be front and center in your video. Then tap "Done" and share your reel.

By the way, you can record more than one voiceover clip for your reel.

Use the slider at the bottom to edit when your voiceover starts playing.

If you want to delete the last recorded voiceover clip, tap the left arrow and then "Discard."
