TECH CRUNCH - Sep 24 - Instagram is today rolling out a few changes to Reels, after early reviews criticized its design and reports indicated it was failing to gain traction. The company says it's responding to user feedback on a few fronts, by giving Reels users the ability to create longer videos, extend the timer, and by adding tools to trim and delete clips for easier editing. TikTok's default is 15-second video but it allows videos up to a minute in length, which is a popular option. Reels will allow videos up to 30 seconds long. This could force users to create original content for Reels, instead of repurposing their longer TikTok videos on Instagram.
