In the constant battle to stay ahead among social networks, the platform would be about to extend the duration of the Reels up to 90 seconds.
Reels appeared when Tiktok began to gain popularity, as well as YouTube Shorts, so Instagram wants to differentiate itself by lengthening the duration of them.
Everything seems to indicate that the platform is about to change its rules for Reels, since it will extend its current 60 seconds to the possibility of generating content of up to a minute and a half (90 seconds).
Instagram hasn't made any official announcement yet, so the source of this information is a developer named Alessandro Paluzzi, who uses reverse engineering and code strings to learn about upcoming updates to social media apps.
We will have to wait to see if this update occurs, and consider that it is increasingly difficult for users to pay attention to long videos, so the shorter ones seem to favor success.
