How to save and share audio from Instagram Reels

Instagram introduced the popular reels feature on its platform last year. The social media app also allows users to save audio in the reels for later use. Users can not only save the audio but also save the entire page that consists of reels with one particular audio. These pages can be shared with their friends on the platform. Notably, the ability to save, share and use Instagram audio is now available for both iOS and Android users.

Here are a few simple steps that you can take to save and share Instagram reel audio.

For the unversed, last night at the Connect event 2021, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced to change Facebook’s name to Meta. Users must note that the name change has been for the parent company and not for any of the products served by the company, namely Instagram, Facebook app, Messenger, WhatsApp, among others.
