How to Use Instagram's Remix Feature

TikTok breeds creativity in a way that Reels hasn’t been able to capture yet. TikTok has always allowed users to “Duet” another user’s video, adding their own reactions, thoughts, and content to the original post. Reels has finally added their version of Duets called “Remix.” This is a big win for Instagram Reels users, and it’s certain to make the platform more creative and collaborative. But how to use Remix? We’ve got you covered.


Enable or Disable Remixing on Your Reels

If you want to grow on Instagram Reels, we suggest enabling the Remix feature on your Reels. If you want to share your content without fear that someone might Remix with it and disagree with everything you said in real time, disable Remix on your Reels because if TikTok’s Duet feature is any indication - this will happen. It’s an unfortunate part of the internet, but here we are. Here’s how to enable Remix on Reels.


1. Go to your Instagram Settings. Click privacy, and then click Reels.

2. Toggle the "Enable Remix" switch on and off, depending on your preference.


Enable or Disable Remix on Specific Reels

But what if you want to enable or disable the Remix feature on specific Reels? You can do that!


Go to the Reel you want to change the settings on. Click the three dots in the bottom, and then select "Enable Remixing" or "Disable Remixing" according to your preference. Easy as that.
