Instagram Introduces "Convert to Reel" Feature for Highlights

Instagram has quietly introduced a new feature that allows you to easily create Reels from your Stories Highlights. 

No official feature announcement has been made yet, but our eagle-eyed social team spotted the new dropdown option in their highlights earlier this week. 

This new feature is an Instagram content creation game-changer.

Especially for repurposing content — it takes seconds to transform your carefully curated Instagram Stories Highlights into Reels.

Users can edit these Reels just like any other Reel. You can edit clip duration, remove clips, add content from your camera roll, and select from different audio tracks. 

Not only is it a great repurposing tool, but it’s also an editing time saver – Instagram automatically syncs your clips to the selected music.
