Using the APIs, developers will also be able to leave comments on Reels, answer to them, delete them, make them visible or invisible, and enable or disable comments. Additionally, Reels designated with specific hashtags will be easy for developers to find when searching for publicly accessible Reels.

For both the current and all earlier iterations of the Graph API, API enhancement feature will be available. Reels will instantly become accessible to developers who already have access to the relevant APIs. If your app has previously been given the go-ahead for the necessary permission access levels, there is no need to submit it for further App Review.
