You Can Finally Download Instagram Reels on Mobile

Almost every Instagram user has encountered reels at some point. At the core, it is a short-form video that works pretty similar to Tiktok. Even if you haven’t uploaded a reel, you’ve likely seen them on your Explore feed. However, are you aware that it’s now feasible to download Instagram reels?

Yes! Like how TikTok allows users to download reels, Instagram users can store their favorite reels locally. Of course, you will need to be on your mobile device. The process does not work on PC at the moment. Moreover, you can not download Instagram reels if you are in the web version on your mobile. You need the app.

The announcement came from the CEO of Instagram, Adam Mosseri. And according to the announcement, it’s now possible to download reels on the mobile app. However, the feature currently works in the US region now. But we do expect it to be rolled out worldwide.

How to Download Instagram Reels on Your Mobile
