How To Repost A Reel On Instagram

You all might know how to repost a reel on Instagram. But you can only share them in an Instagram story or share them with your friends in a private message. But there is a way you can repost or share Instagram Reels on your feed.

It’s not possible to repost reels on your feed as a post. But I will show you a unique trick that you can use to repost on your feed.

How to Repost Reels On Instagram Feed or Story

I like to mention that you can’t actually share or repost reels on your feed. If I tap on the airplane icon it will only give you the option to send it to a friend as a private message or add it to your story.

Also if I tap on the three dots it will show a prompt from the bottom of the screen and there is a share button. If I tap on it then it will only give me the option to share it through some application on my phone.

So how can you share or repost reels on Instagram? well, it’s pretty easy!

Screen Record Reels To Repost On Your Feed

No doubt every smartphone comes with an inbuilt screen recording feature that lets you record anything on your phone. It’s a prominent method to post any reel on your feed. You may also use a third party recording app if you don’t have access to this feature. Here’s how you can screen record the reels:

  • First, open up the IG app.
  • Then go to the reel that you want to record.
  • Next scroll down above to open the notification panel.
  • Now tap on the screen recording option then tap the red button to start it.

If you’re unable to find the option then edit the notification panel to add the recording option.

  • Once you record the reel it will go to your gallery where you can edit the reel.
  • At last, you can post this reel on your feed.
