Instagram has launched a new feature similar to TikTok.

It's called "Reels" and like TikTok, it lets Instagram users make 15-second videos set to music or audio, including special effects.

The launch of the feature comes as uncertainty over TikTok's future in the US continues.

President Trump considers TikTok a threat because its parent company is based in China.

He recently threatened to ban it unless an American company purchases it.

Microsoft is currently in talks to take over the app.
