Instagram has rolled out two new features that are similar to the popular short video app, TikTok. The company has announced via its community page that those who create Reels on Instagram will now be able to use the newly added audio tools. These are called Text to Speech and Voice Effects that will offer content creators more options to create creative Reels.

The latest “Text to Speech” feature allows all the creators to use an artificial voice to read the text that they type on a video if they don’t want to use their own voice. The social media platform is now also offering a “Voice Effects” tool that one can use to modify the audio and voiceover in Instagram Reels. Both the features are already available on TikTok and as this platform is not available in India, people will now be able to use its popular audio tools.

The “Text to Speech” is easily accessible and users don’t need to go through a complicated process. One can access it through the text tool, which is visible while creating Reels. The feature is basically for those who want an auto-generated voice to loudly read the text they add to Reels. Here’s a quick look at how you can use the “Text to Speech” feature and access the Voice Effects option to add an artificial voice to any video.
