Instagram Stories and Reels are a great way to tell everyone you know about your whereabouts. Stories and Reels are useful for companies and brands to talk about their latest products, services, offers, and more to better engage with their customers. These two features also allow influencers to update followers about their upcoming videos. But do you know about the latest feature of Instagram in 2021?

Instagram has rolled out a creative voice changer option for both Stories and Reel. If you are new to the Instagram voice changer feature and want to learn how it works, we have got you covered. Using the voice changer effect will change the way you have been uploading Stories and Videos. It’s entertaining.

Part 1: How to Change Your Voice on Instagram Story? [Step by Step]

Before you find out how to use the voice changer for Instagram, you need to first log in to your mobile Instagram account. Once you have done that, go through the steps that we have mentioned below:

Part 2: Types of Instagram Voice Filters

There are five voice filters available. Each of them is unique, and depending on your mood and requirements, you can pick a voice filter.

Helium: The first voice filter is helium. It makes your voice sound as if you have inhaled the helium gas. As a result, your voice will sound squishy and cute.

Giant: If you love a giant voice, try the giant voice because it will make you sound completely different!

Vocalist: The vocalist filter makes your voice sound incredibly soothing and melodic. If you like soft voice, this is the filter to go for.

Announcer: The announcer filter will let you speak like a real announcer. It has echo effects too!

Robot: The last one is the robot filter, where you will sound like a robot. This one makes you sound like you are from outer space.

Just like you can change your voice when filming a story, you can try the same voice-changing filter while recording a reel.

Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Go to your Instagram account and click on your profile picture with the + icon. And then click on the Reels option.
