While the default recording duration restriction for Reels is 15 seconds, you have the option to increase the recording time limit to a maximum of 30 seconds. A single Instagram Story video, on the other hand, has a time limit of 15 seconds in length. Therefore, if you post a reel (which is longer than 15 seconds in length) to your Instagram story, just 15 seconds of your video will be shown on your account’s tale. It is necessary for your readers to touch the tale in order to see the remainder of the reel in the Reels area. In addition, if you save a lengthy reel from the narrative, just the first 15 seconds of video are saved to your camera roll, rather than the whole reel.
What if you want to upload whole 30-second reels on Instagram Story instead of just clips? However, it is not yet able to upload reels that are longer than 15 seconds to Instagram story. For this reason, users are forced to see whole reels inside the Reels interface on Instagram due to a constraint imposed by the platform. This makes sense since viewing a reel in the Reels page increases engagement and allows users to discover further Reels.
Having said that, there is a workaround that you may use in order to post lengthier reels to your Instagram story. The secret is to download the reel to your gallery and then submit it to the narrative, as is described below. A lengthy reel of 30 seconds will automatically be divided into two pieces when it is uploaded to your tale, as a result of this feature. Your followers will then be able to view the clips back to back in two parts, each segment lasting 15 seconds in length each time. However, the sole disadvantage is that the reel you upload will not have a link to the original reel.
Here is how you can post complete reels on Instagram Story on an iPhone, so keep reading. You may post someone else’s lengthy reel or your own reel to Instagram Stories by following the steps outlined below.
Once you have selected the reels from your collections, now you need to tap the “Send” icon mentioned on the reels. This is how you will see the sharing list on your screen. Now, you need to choose the first option “Add reels to your story.” Once you click this option, go to the story editor screen once it is done.
To share someone else’s Instagram reel to your news feed, Install “Repost: For Instagram” from the App Store (on iPhone) or Google Play (on Android). Go to Instagram and find the reel video you want to repost. Tap the ellipsis button (3-dot icon) at the bottom-right corner and select “Copy link”
