Instagram has introduced new interesting features on its platform that allow users to comment on posts and reels using GIFs, and to edit reels. Recently, Meta has focussed on improving the Instagram reels user experience. Mark Zuckerberg, the company's CEO, recently said that since the introduction of reels, user time on Instagram has increased by more than 24 percent.

The recently-launched new features of Instagram include GIF comments on posts and reels, Instagram Gifts and new editing features on reels. These features are accessible to all users globally.


Additionally, the Meta-owned platform has disclosed that Instagram Gifts will launch in the coming weeks, enabling creators to get paid for their reels. 'Gifts on Reels' has been in the testing stage since November 2022.

Instagram's ability to edit reels was introduced last month. Users may now split clips, regulate speed, and switch content in Instagram's reels editor thanks to new features that have been added.
