How do I download Instagram Reels (Android)
Instagram does not allow users to save Reels or Photos, Videos, Stories, directly. There are many third-party apps that can do this. We have the popular “INS Video Downloader” app for Android. It currently has over 10 million downloads. It’s safe and popular so we are confident in its safety. Let’s see what you can do.
First: Download the “INS Video Downloader” app from the Google Play Store.
Step 2 – Give it permissions like access to files and photos.
3: Next, go back to Instagram and select the Reels that you wish to save.
Step 5 Copy the URL from the app above and paste it in the area at the top.
Step 6 : The video will now be saved to your app. But there’s one catch. The video will not be saved to your phone’s gallery. The video will need to be shared with Gmail or other applications so that you can then download it.
You can also log in to Instagram using the app, save your Instagram Reels and Videos, stories, and even IGTVs from other users.
