How To Watch Instagram Reels
There are three main different ways to watch Instagram Reels:

Another way to watch Instagram Reels is to visit the Instagram Explore feed. You’ll see a Reels video at the top. Click on “Reels” and swipe down to watch more Reels videos.
If you have already posted at least one Reels video, you can also watch other Reels by visiting your profile page and clicking the Reels icon.
