How to Find Viral Audios for Your Reels

We've got the inside scoop on how to find the hottest and most trending audio on Instagram for your Reels. Knowing how to ride the wave of the latest and greatest audio can definitely give you a boost. Here’s how to find the perfect audio to make your Reels stand out from the crowd.

Instagram's Reels feature offers a great way to reach new potential followers with your content… How? If you take a look at your Instagram app, you can see that Reels have their own feed, directly accessed from the navigation bar towards the bottom of the app. This feed is for Reels ONLY, and different from the normal home feed which shares static feed posts, Reels, suggest content, and ads.

Reels are a great way to showcase your creativity, connect with your followers, and even gain new ones. But, with so many people using Reels, how do you make sure your content stands out and gets the attention it deserves? The answer lies in using viral audios.

Viral audios are the sounds and music that are trending on Instagram. When you use a viral audio, Instagram will push your Reel out to more users, increasing your chances of going viral. In this post, we'll show you how to find viral audios for your Reels.

And using a fresh trending audio that is under 10k uses already on the app, is a great technique to give your Reels that extra boost. Here’s how to find fresh trending audios.

Step 1: Go to your Reels feed

Open the Instagram app and go to your Reels feed. Scroll through the feed until you see a trending audio with an arrow pointing upwards next to it. This arrow means that this audio is trending and a lot of users are making content with this audio right now.

Step 2: Check the number of reels under the audio

Once you find a trending audio, check the number of Reels under it. Ideally, the audio should have under 5-10k reels under it. This is a good sign because it means the audio is still relatively new and hasn't been overused yet.

Step 3: Use the audio for your next Reel

Once you've found a trending audio with under 5-10k reels, use it for your next Reel. Be creative with your content and make sure to use the audio in a unique way. By using a trending audio, you're increasing your chances of your Reel going viral.

Using viral audios is a great way to up your chances of your Reels going viral too, and to boost your views overall. So, if you're not getting the numbers you want, try using this hack and see the results for yourself.
