If you want to know how to reverse audio on Instagram, you are in the right place.

Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world.

It offers remarkable features to share content and grow by attracting relevant followers.

While billions of users post photos, videos, stories, and go-live, the platform is also a great place for social trends.

One such trend is posting a reel or story with reversed audio or song and asking users to guess the original one.

You might’ve seen such reels in your feed.

Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t provide a straightforward feature to reverse an audio on the platform.

But, there are a few workarounds you can use to achieve this.
