Instagram is becoming a lot more like TikTok in an aggressive effort to win back young eyeballs. The Meta-owned platform has announced that new video posts will be shared as reels in the coming weeks.

The upcoming change will automatically convert new videos uploaded to the platform into reels in an obvious attempt to further give TikTok a run for its money. As a result, the video and Reels tabs on your profile will be merged into one tab.
