How do I find reels to watch on Instagram?

To find reels to watch from the Instagram app:

  1. Tap at the bottom.
  2. Scroll down to see more reels.

Note that you can also scroll through your Feed to see reels from creators you follow.

We aim to reduce the visibility of reels containing content about politics on unconnected surfaces (example: scrolling through Reels). Reels from people you follow will still be shown on Profile and Feed, and politics content won't have reduced visibility on these surfaces.

How do I find reels that use a certain audio or hashtag?

To find reels with a certain audio or hashtag, you can:

  • Tap the audio name or hashtag at the bottom of the reel to see a page with other reels that use the same audio or hashtag.
  • Search for specific hashtags in the search bar at the top.

Tap Use Audio on a reels audio page to record a reel with the same audio. If you record a reel with original audio, your original reel will appear first on the page with other reels that use the same audio.
