Editing a reel that has been posted on Instagram is a process to make changes to the publication that has already been shared and is visible to other users. The Meta social network allows you to adjust the reel layer, legend, markings and location.
More complex edits on the reel, such as the video or audio content used, cannot be altered if the reel is published.
