We have created this guide to help you find saved reels and learn how to see liked reels on Instagram.
Instagram Reels is a feature on the platform that allows users to create short, up to 90-second short videos.
These clips can be edited with various creative tools such as filters, effects, and text overlays. Reels can be shared on the user's profile as well as the Reels section of the Explore page, where they have the potential to be seen by a wider audience.
Users can also interact with Reels by leaving comments, liking, and sharing them with their followers. Instagram Reels has quickly become a popular format for creators to share content and engage with their audience on the platform.
TL;DR & Summary
It is not currently possible, (at least not directly) to see a list of the Instagram reels that a user has liked on the platform. Instagram makes it easy to access posts that you have liked.
The new feature to view liked post is available for all users. You can find all the liked videos, reels & posts under "Your activity" under your Instagram profile.
As far as accessing saved reels are concerned, you can save reels on Instagram but you can't create & add reels to collections, yet.
