Method 1: Using a Third-Party App or Website:
There are various third-party apps and websites that allow you to download Instagram Reels videos. Follow these steps:
- Find the Instagram Reels video you want to download. Open the Instagram app and locate the Reels post.
- Copy the video URL. Tap on the three dots (…) at the top-right corner of the post and select “Copy Link.”
- Visit a reliable third-party app or website. There are several options available, such as “InstaReels” or “DownloadGram.” Open your preferred app or website in your device’s browser.
- Paste the copied URL. Look for a text field or search bar on the third-party app or website. Tap on it and paste the URL you copied.
- Initiate the download. Once you’ve pasted the URL, follow the instructions provided by the third-party app or website to start the download process. Typically, you will need to tap on a “Download” or similar button.
- Save the video. After the download is complete, you will usually be prompted to save the video to your device’s gallery or a specific folder.
Method 2: Using Screen Recording:
Another method to download Instagram Reels videos is by using the screen recording feature on your device. Here’s how:
- Locate the Instagram Reels video you want to download. Open the Instagram app and navigate to the Reels post you wish to record.
- Prepare for screen recording. On most devices, you can access the screen recording feature by swiping down from the top-right corner (on iPhones) or swiping up from the bottom (on Android devices) to reveal the control center/notification center. Look for the screen recording icon, which usually resembles a circle within a circle. Tap on it to initiate screen recording.
- Start recording. Once you’ve tapped the screen recording icon, your device will begin recording everything that appears on your screen. Open the Instagram Reels post and let the video play in full screen. Ensure the audio is enabled if you want to capture the sound as well.
- Stop and save the recording. After you’ve finished recording the Reels video, stop the screen recording by tapping the recording icon in the control center/notification center again. The recorded video will typically be saved in your device’s gallery or a designated folder.
Note: The screen recording method captures the entire screen, including any notifications or overlays that may appear during the recording. You may need to edit the video to remove any unwanted elements.
Downloading Instagram Reels videos allows you to enjoy your favorite content offline or share it with others. While there are third-party apps and websites available for downloading Instagram Reels videos, it is important to exercise caution and use reputable sources. Alternatively, screen recording offers a simple and direct way to capture Reels videos on your device. Whichever method you choose, remember to respect the intellectual property rights of content creators and seek permission when necessary.
