Instagram Reels witnessed a lot of popularity after the banned of TikTok. However, TikTok has now increased its video limit to three minutes. To compete with TikTok, Instagram is now reportedly working on a new feature named 'Earn bonuses from Instagram' which will help users to earn through Instagram Reels. However, influencers and creators can also now earn through this app but only when it is a paid promotion.

How About Competition?

If the app gets this feature in the future, Instagram is expected to compete with its rival platforms YouTube and Snapchat. For instance, Snapchat's Spotlight helps its users to earn money via their videos. However, there are some criteria like the uploaded video should be original and not copied and the Spotlight video should reach a certain point. Even it is said to give users the opportunity to earn a share of more than $1 million.


Similarly, Instagram users would only be eligible to earn once their videos will reach a certain point. As of now, the app has not shared any word on this. We expect to get more info in the coming days.
