How do I remix a video or photo on Instagram?
Remixing photos is not available to everyone at this time.
Remix lets anyone create a reel that includes someone else's video or photo. They can also download the video or photo as part of their remix.
To remix a reel
Instagram app for Android and iPhone:
  1. Tapmore actions (iPhone) or more actions (Android) at the bottom of the reel you want to remix.
  2. Tap Remix This Reel and select if you would like your clip to appear at the same time as the original video or after the original video.
  3. Tap layout Layout on the right to select a different layout. You can select from layouts that show your remix next to or below the original reel, where the original reel appears in the top right of your remix, or where the original reel appears as the background of your remix.
  4. Record your reel.

When you share a remix, it’ll show your Instagram username and Remix with [original creator’s username] at the bottom. Anyone on Instagram can tap Remix with [original creator’s username] to watch the original video and create their own remix.
Note that you can mix the audio and add voiceovers to your remix. You can also add stickers and text to the original video and the new reel you record. You can remix your own reel, but you can’t remix a video that’s already a remix or videos that the creator doesn’t allow remixes on. Learn more about managing your reels remix settings.
