New Features for Facebook Reels

Music Library

One of the latest updates for Facebook Reels is that we can now add music to our videos through Facebook’s music library. It includes a vast range of music tracks in many different genres to choose from. So, if you couldn’t find the right track for your reels before, it’s about time to explore this new feature and add some catchy tunes to your videos.

Trimming and Editing

Another great feature of Facebook Reels is the ability to trim and edit video clips before recording the final video. This feature gives us much more control over how our videos look and sound. We can now use it to cut out unwanted parts, adjust the length of the video and even add some transition effects to make the video more professional-looking.

Text Overlays

Adding text overlays can be a great way to make our videos more engaging and informative. Fortunately, Facebook Reels now allows us to add text overlays to our videos. We can choose from many different text styles, fonts, and colours and insert them at any point in our video clip. This new feature also allows creators to include captions, descriptions or important details in their videos.


Facebook Reels now offers the option to set a duration for our videos, up to 60 seconds long. We can now record our videos for a specific amount of time, without worrying about running out of time or overshooting the length. This feature also includes a progress bar that shows how much time is left in the video and when it’s going to end.

Timer and Countdown

Using a timer and countdown feature is essential for preparing and recording the video efficiently. Fortunately, Facebook Reels now includes this feature, which helps creators save time and avoid unnecessary trimming and editing. We can now set the timer for the length of our video and start recording with a countdown to prepare ourselves.

Share Reels on Instagram

The latest development in Facebook Reels now allows us to share our Facebook Reels directly to our Instagram stories. This feature is an excellent way to extend the reach of our videos and showcase them to a broader audience. It also saves us time from uploading the same video twice on two different platforms.

Privacy Settings

Last but not least, Facebook Reels now offers the option to choose a specific audience for our videos through our privacy settings. Privacy is more important than ever, and this feature provides us with more control over who can watch our videos. We can choose to share our videos with our friends only, specific groups, or even the public.


Facebook Reels’ latest updates provide us with more control over how we create and share our videos.
