Reels are all the rage over on Instagram at the moment, and they’re one of the best ways to boost your stats on the app.
Want more followers? Create a Reel. Want more engagement? Create a Reel. It really is that simple (sort of). I say sort of because it’s not just a matter of creating Reels, it’s a matter of creating Reels that hit people’s timelines and feeds. And how do you do that? By using trending Reels sounds.
“Mackenzie, how do I find these trending sounds?”

What are Instagram Reels?

We cover Instagram Reels a lot on the Flick blog.
If you’re looking for an in-depth guide to Instagram Reels in general, we’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for a more targeted guide to understanding Instagram Reels Insights, we’ve got you covered there as well.
For the purpose of this post, let’s do a quick refresher on what Reels are. Instagram Reels are short, sub-90-second videos with sound that you can create, edit and share on the app. You can also choose to add in sounds from Instagram’s community-generated library, your device, or from a third-party music app (like Spotify).

Instagram Reels Sounds FAQs

To find trending Reel sounds on Instagram, use these built-in features:
  • Search hashtags
  • Follow trend accounts
  • Browse the Audio tab
  • Explore the Explore page
You can also check what’s trending on music apps like Spotify and Apple Music and explore “Reel” and “TikTok” playlists. Lastly, you can get ideas from TikTok, which is often ahead of the curve on trending audio.
To save a sound, open the Sounds page, tap the three-dot menu at the top right, and click “Save”. When you want to use the sound, find it in the Saved Sounds section. You can also save a sound to use in a video quickly by saving the entire Reel.
