Meta has updated Facebook Reels with new options including templates, additional duration, and an integration of Memories.
Facebook users will now be able to record Reels up to 90 seconds long, which is an additional 30 seconds to the previous duration. While this update doesn’t really align with the concept of “short-form” videos, it makes sense, nonetheless, considering how other popular social platforms like TikTok and YouTube have done the same.
The Memories integration, which was first released for Instagram Reels has been expanded to Facebook Reels. This means that Memories can now be shared as Reels on Facebook with one tap.
Among the tools for Facebook Reels is a new addition called Grooves, which is meant to help users have their Reels clips automatically synced to the beats and rhythm of the music track of their choice.
Lastly, Facebook Reels can now be created using templates trending across the platform, hence enabling users and creators to maximize their content reach.
