To increase reel engagement, Instagram adds new Audio tab

Instagram has added the search for audio option within the app's search tab, making it simpler to tap into music-related trends, with a target on Reels. Tapping on any track will bring up a TikTok-style display of Reels that have used that song's samples.

You can then download the audio for later use while also getting a complete overview of relevant trends .  It will assist Instagram in promoting the use of Reels in an effort to combat increased competition from TikTok.
