Here’s what a few talented creators have to say about Remix on Reels
Here’s what Mr. Faisu has to say,
Instagram, as a platform, has always helped creators like me to flourish and reach out to a greater audience out there. The new feature, Remix is phenomenal. It’s a great opportunity for creators like me to connect with my fans. Wishing Instagram all the very best and honoured to be featured on Remix.
Taneesha Mirwani says,
I think Remix is a very cool feature that helps Instagram become even more interactive. I love it because I think it gets the best out of me creatively.
Here’s what Saurabh Ghadge thinks about this feature,
I have loved using Remix so far! Regarding my experience so far, I planned on creating a video that my viewers could use and create a Remix of their own. That gives a higher chance of UGC and helps me connect more with the audience. It’s exciting how in a day itself I could cross-collaborate with creators without actually meeting them. Karan(@focusedindian) and I planned on using each other’s Remix videos and we’ve got a great response so far. In fact, I was surprised when Kusha Kapila also remixed my Reels. It was so effortless with a quick turnaround. If that’s what day 1 looks like, I’m sure in the days to come, we can explore new content formats and entertain our audiences together even more! Remix feels like a Yashraj Mukhate takeover!
Aabir Vyas says,
I feel that this Remix feature is really cool as now you can be more creative and innovative than before. Although, I do believe that this feature is a bit challenging as now you must add value and humour to a video that is already widely seen and accepted. But it’s a great opportunity for budding artists to collaborate with their favourite creators without any barriers and move towards mutual growth. Ultimately, it’s not just about inventing new content but also about adding a pinch of innovation and creativity to that existing invention. And that sounds like a splendid idea to me.
It hasn’t even been a few days since this new feature was launched and it’s already taking social media by storm. In all, Remix is quite an entertaining feature and we love how it helps so many creators connect seamlessly with each other. This feature is here to stay so, start Remixing right away!
