What audio can I use in my reel on Instagram?
You can record a reel with your own original audio, with original audio by another Reels creator, or with music from the Instagram music library using the Audio tool in Reels.
Original Audio
Original audio should be unique audio that you created, either while filming your reel in the Instagram app or in a video you uploaded. When you post a reel with your original audio, it will display your username. If you upload someone else's music as original audio, we may change the description to the artist's username and song.
When you post a reel on a public account, anyone on Instagram can record a reel using your original audio. If your account is set to private, no one will be able to record a reel using your original audio.
Licensed Audio
Why did I receive a notification that my reel was added to an audio page?
When we detect that your original audio may contain licensed music or audio, we’ll automatically add attribution for the artist and song title. Your reel will be added to the audio page for that song, where more people on Instagram may find it.
What if the attribution is wrong?
If we’ve identified the wrong audio track, you can remove your reel from the audio page. Tap ig-three-dots at the bottom of the reel, then tap Remove From Audio Page. Your audio will be attributed to you and will say Original Audio next to your username.
