Instagram rolls out “Convert to Reel” feature for Stories Highlights

Instagram new feature

Instagram has introduced a new feature that allows you to create Reels from your curated Stories Highlights. The feature might not be available to all yet.

While there has been no official announcement for the same, Later Blog noticed the development on their social media profile. Social Samosa team verified the development and has also received the same feature.

The feature takes seconds to transform the curated Instagram Stories Highlights into Reels. Users can edit these Reels with the usual options available. Further, you can edit clip duration, remove clips, add content from your camera roll, and select from different audio tracks.

To convert a Story Highlight into Reels, tap on the Instagram Stories Highlight you want to turn into a Reel. Tap the three-dot menu icon and select “Convert to Reel.” (The last option in the list, refer to the screenshot above). From then on, the process is the same as creating any other Reels.

This feature may not be available to all users yet.


Gifted napper, talker, and ice cream eater. Second of her name, but always the first one to crack upon a lame joke. Loves to brew her own chai-tea and all while chatting you up like there's no end. An appreciator of art, she looks at life with an artistic approach, always doodling something in the air. Movies, blankets, and hot chocolate are my most favorite things. A chatty-Jackie by nature, I am still contemplating whether"ye ni bolna chiye tha kya". Born at a very young age, I have a deep deep love for foreign languages, so much so that I can speak & write French, understand Italian/ Spanish and be clueless about German.
