How To Add Reels Back to Your Profile Grid

With the older version of Instagram, we can easily add a reel back to the profile grid as it offers an "Add to Profile Grid" button, but it later dropped this feature in the subsequent versions, and now you can only add a reel to your profile while sharing.

So here come two workarounds for you to add reels to the profile grid after removing or posting them.

Method 1 Add Reels Back to Profile Grid with Instagram Old Version

The first way to add reels back to your profile grid is to download an older version of Instagram. Let's see how to put Instagram reels back on the profile grid after removing or posting them.

Step 1
Uninstall the current version of Instagram from your phone. Before you do so, you'd better save your reels drafts first as you will lose all draft reels and story drafts when you uninstall the Instagram app.
Step 2
Go to your browser to search for the older Instagram version and click the one you need to browse for the Aug, 2020 version and download it.
Pro Tip:
1. Here is the link for the Instagram old version: https://androidapksfree.com/instagram/com-instagram-android/old/.
2. Some users may find that "not every Instagram Apk version from August worked for them". Don't Worry! Just try a few version before it!
Step 3
Waiting for a few minutes to download the APK; once the downloading is finished, open the file and install the Instagram app.
Step 4
Open the Instagram app you just installed and log into your account, then go to the profile tab.
Step 5
From here, you won't see the Reels tab first, don't worry! You need to refresh your Instagram to get the Reel - just log out and log in again, then the reel tab should now appear.
Step 6
Now, go to the Reels tab on your profile, open the reel video you want to bring back to your profile grid, and click the 3-dots at the bottom and select "add to Profile Grid" to bring back your reel to the profile grid.

Method 2 Add Reels Back to Your Profile Grid by Reposting

Notice that the method above is only for Android users to put their Reels back to the profile grid. But there is another way to add your reels back to your profile grid on your iPhone, which is reposting the reel again.

Although reposting can help you get your reel back to the profile grid, it removes all your efforts on views, likes, and comments. If you're fine with the only drawback, keep reading to learn how to put the reel back to the profile grid by reposting.

Step 1
Open the Instagram app, log in to your account, and then go to your profile.
Step 2
Click on the reels section and select the video that you want to move back to the profile grid.
Step 3
Click on the three-dot button at the right corner and then click the Delete option. Here make sure that the same reel is present in your gallery; if not, you need to save the reel to your camera roll/ gallery before deleting it.
Step 4
Once deleted, go to the Instagram reel camera, then the gallery to find that reel and load it for editing.
Step 5
Edit the reel as you do before, then click the Next button to add caption for the video.
Step 6
