Facebook increases Reels length to 90 seconds
Tech giant Meta has extended Facebook Reels to a maximum length of 90 seconds from the earlier 60 seconds. However, it still falls short of the 10-minute maximum video length of TikTok Reels.
The company is also releasing a feature to sync clips with a song.
Using 'visual beat Technology', Meta will introduce Grooves, which will automatically sync and align motion with the beat of a song. Moreover, Facebook users would be able to generate Reels from memories, using trending templates.
