Meta has announced a number of improvements to Facebook’s video features. The new update has begun to roll out which brings improved Reels editing features, the option to upload HDR videos, and the Watch tab has been replaced with a Video tab. More features such as adding music, filters, effects, titles, and captions also come with the update. Facebook users will also be able to upload videos in HDR as well.
More Reels editing features are now available in Facebook Feed thanks to upgrades from Meta. The company has released new editing tools for Reels or long-form videos. On Reels, Meta integrated audio, music, and text in one location. And now it’s accessible for reels and videos on Feed on Meta Business Suite. Additionally, Meta is introducing additional editing features like the ability to change a clip’s speed, reverse it, or replace it. Users can also make their videos better by exploring and adding music and audio clips, recording voiceovers and reducing unwanted noise.
Users of Facebook can now upload HDR videos from their phones to Reels, where they can play them again in full HDR. Also, the Facebook Watch has been replaced with the Video tab. According to the company, this will be a one-stop shop for everything video on Facebook, including Reels, long-form and Live content.
The video tab will now have new horizontal-scroll reel sections that emphasise recommended reels so you can easily jump into short-form videos. You can still scroll vertically via a personalised feed that promotes all forms of video content.
Soon, the shortcut bar—which is located at the top of the app on Android and the bottom of the app on iOS—will have a Video as a tab. The tabs in the shortcut bar change based on the parts of the app you use the most.
Video Explore has also been revamped on Facebook to let people discover popular videos on the platform. Explore can be found by tapping the search icon in the Video tab. You can view a selection of reels, long-form and live videos related to relevant topics and hashtags.
Moreover, You no longer have to switch between applications to view and comment on Instagram Reels that have been recommended to you on Facebook. You can add your Facebook and Instagram accounts to the Accounts Centre to get started.
