That’s right, TikTok’s super popular text-to-speech feature is now coming to Instagram Reels.
If you’ve used the trendy video app in the last few months, you’ve probably heard a robotic voice-over effect that sounds a little like Siri or Alexa.
And now, text-to-speech is being rolled out on Reels – with the option to choose from two different automated voices.
This new feature is perfect for brands and creators who want to do more creative storytelling on the platform, and (good news!) it’s really easy to do.
How to Use the Text-to-speech Feature on Instagram Reels
To activate Instagram Reels’ new text-to-speech feature, use the text tool and write the copy you’d like converted into a voiceover.
Then, tap on the text button at the bottom of the screen until a “secret” menu pops up, and select “Text-to-Speech.”
From here, you can choose “Voice 1” or “Voice 2,” or tap “None” to disable the text-to-speech feature.
Once you’ve turned your text into a voiceover, you can resize the text or move it off screen to obscure it from view.
NOTE: This feature is still being rolled out, so if you don’t have this option yet, sit tight!
