Instagram reels are fun to watch, right? There are reels of different categories, some are cute and fun, some share important information, and some teach you new things.

Read Instagram messages privately without confirmation of reading
Another useful feature that WhatsApp has and Instagram does not have is the ability to turn off read certificates for Instagram Direct Messages. This can become problematic when you accidentally read someone’s DM that you don’t want to answer at all. And the other person is now asking you to answer. To overcome this problem, you can see our detailed guide for read Instagram messages without being seen.
Post Instagram pictures with music
One of the many reasons behind the success of Instagram reels is the popular music that people add to them. Music is an easy way to get someone’s attention and increase the reach of your release. Until now, music was only available for videos and reels, but now we have the option to add music to pictures on Instagram, but only on new posts. See our detailed guide to find out how you can add music to Instagram pictures.
Post the same picture / video / reel with your partner / friend on Instagram on both accounts
You’ve probably been thinking about posting a picture / video / relay with your friend on both your own and a friend’s account. To do this, you used to either tag your friend, which resulted in the post appearing in his / her tagged section, or repeat the entire upload process from your friend’s account. Well, now Instagram has made the process very easy, with the collaboration feature, you can post exactly the same thing on both accounts with one click.
See our posting guide in collaboration with your friend on Instagram.
Share tweets directly in Instagram stories
If you are someone who uses both Twitter and Instagram a lot, then you must have felt pain when you re-posted the content of your tweet on Instagram. Even posting a screenshot of a tweet in Instagram Stories is a process in itself, as you need to take a screenshot, cut it out, format it for stories, and explain relevance (if necessary).
Well, not anymore, because Instagram now supports sharing tweets directly in the form of stories, which can be clicked on to read the full context of the tweet. You must have an iPhone or iPad for this, because from now on this feature is only available on Apple devices, see our guide for share tweets in Insta stories. This feature will be available soon on Android.
Add a customizable link to Instagram stories
Previously, only those users who have more than 10,000 followers were allowed to add a drag-and-drop link to their Instagram stories. Now Instagram has changed things a bit, allowing all Instagram users, even if there are less than 10,000, to add a link to the stories. You can see our guide for add links to Instagram Stories, the best part is that you can even customize the link text.
Reply to a comment with Instagram reels
Another handy and useful Instagram feature you should know in 2022 is that you can now respond to comments using a video on a reel, where the comment will appear as a sticker. This feature is especially useful for creators, brands or influencers who get a lot of similar comments on Instagram, so we don’t have to answer the same question over and over again.
Check out who stopped following on Instagram
You must have experienced when one of you asked you to follow them, in exchange for following you. Later, after a while, they stop following you, and Instagram offers no easy way to follow who stopped following you. There are some third-party apps to track people who have stopped following you, one such app is Followers and Unfollowers, you just need to log in to your Instagram account on the app and it generates a complete list of people who stopped following you after signing up for Unfollowers .
Save mobile data while watching reels
We all use Instagram and watch a lot of reels, watching so many high quality reels, consuming a lot of data. And if you are not connected to Wifi, then your mobile data will be exhausted in the blink of an eye.
