Instagram is officially launching a new Remix feature that lets you create “duets” with other people’s Reels.
To help you get more interactive with other people’s Reels – and collaborate on content – Instagram is now letting users create Reels alongside existing ones. The new feature lets you “remix” a Reel to capture your reactions, respond to your audience, get creative with other people’s content, and more.

The feature was already in testing, and some Instagram users have already been using it for some time.
To use the Remix feature, just tap on the three-dot menu found at the bottom of a reel and choose Remix This Reel. Then, record your remix. You will be able to control the volume of the original reel’s audio, the volume of your recorded audio, and even add a voiceover if you like.
To use Voiceover, all you have to do is tap on the microphone icon. To edit any of the volume controls, just tap on the volume icon.
Remix is now enabled by default for all new reels that you publish from a public account, but to enable it on any older reels, just tap the three-dot menu and then “Enable Remixing,” to allow remixing on the specific reel.
If you find an old reel that can’t be remixed, just ask the owner to enable remixing.
You will also be able to turn off the Remix feature for all reels, at any time, through your Settings – or use the three-dot menu for individual reels.
Instagram’s new Remix feature is pretty close to a TikTok Duets clone – the feature lets users react to other videos or interact with them to creating their own.
In other news, Snapchat is also seemingly working on a similar feature – and might even be using the same name.
The Remix feature is meant to help videos become more interactive on Instagram, encourages users to do more than just watch passively. You’ll be able to see your remixes within the Reels tab on your profile, and also see – through the Activity tab – who remixes your content.
