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. Note that you can’t use original audio from a feed video unless you remix the video.

Original Audio

Original audio is unique audio you created, either while filming your reel in the Instagram app or in a video you uploaded, or unique audio by another Reels creator. When someone posts a reel with original audio, it will display their username.

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.

If you upload licensed music as original audio, we may change the description to the artist's name and song.

Licensed Audio

Licensed audio is copyrighted audio available on the Instagram music library and includes things like music, movies, TV shows and sound effects. All licensed audio must be attributed or linked to the artist and include the name of the track.
Attributed Audio

Why did I receive a notification that my reel was added to an audio page?

When we detect the audio you recorded or uploaded uses licensed music, we’ll automatically change attribution from Original Audio to 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 more options (Android) or more actions (iPhone) 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.
