Reels on Instagram are trying to seduce more users and establish themselves as a worthy competitor to TikTok, after nearly a year.
Meta (Facebook’s new identity) announced new features for this short content that correspond to features already present in its Chinese app: voice effects and a text-to-audio tool.
Which voice effects are available for Instagram Reels?
In Instagram’s short clips section, there are a number of new features, including the availability of voice effects. It is now possible for content creators to alter the sound of their content with a number of alternatives available to them.
It is important to remember that Engaged points out that voices can be made to sound finite in certain ways, such as sounding like the voice of a person inhaling helium, or to sounding very deep, robotic, or even announcing radio programs.
Why does Instagram Reels use Text to Speech?
Moreover, Text to speech, a first for the social network, converts text into audio. The voice is generated automatically from written words. You can use this option if you want a voiceover (or a simple narration) over the video, but you do not want to add your own voice.
In the lower-left corner of the screen, you can find the function inside the text bubble. Prior to publishing the video, you must choose one of two available voice tones.
Reel creators receive money from Instagram
TN Tecno reported on Instagram’s plans to encourage users to create reels. Users who submit short videos to a Facebook program can receive rewards of up to 35,000 dollars. While there seem to be no fixed rules, the amounts vary according to the number of followers and views.

While we are still developing the payment system, we expect that payments will fluctuate as we implement it for more creators,” explained Meta, recognizing the still-experimental nature of their plan.
Other online platforms also pay their users to create more and better content. Snapchat has recently announced a rewards program that ranges from $1,000 to $25,000, whereas YouTube pays out up to $10,000 a month for popular videos on its portal.
