How to Download Instagram Reels Videos on Mobile and PC

It is possible to download the videos published on Instagram Reels via the mobile phone, with the help of an app, or on the PC, via the internet browser. The social network does not allow you to download this type of content natively. But it does offer the option to save to watch later.

Check out how simple it is to download and save Reels on Android, iPhone, and computer.

On Android:

2. Tap on the three dots icon in the lower right corner of the post;

3. In the menu that opens, tap Copy link ;

4. Then open the Repost for Instagram – Regram app , which will automatically read the copied link and list it on the main page. Tap on the video thumbnail to open it;

  • If the app doesn’t open Reels automatically, just paste the link into the search bar on the app’s home screen.

5. On the next screen, you can choose where you want to insert the watermark with the @ of the Reels creator and the color. You can also choose not to use a watermark;

6. To download, tap on the down arrow icon at the bottom of the app. The video will be saved in the phone’s Gallery.

On iPhone

On iPhone, you can conveniently save Reels with a specialized app. Or, if you prefer not to download anything, you can use the iOS Screen Recorder.

Before following the steps below, please download the Repost for an Instagram app, available for free. Please be advised that it is only possible to download posts from users with a public or closed profile, but which you follow.

A feature to repost Reels on your Instagram will open. If you don’t want to do this, just close the program.

With the Screen Recorder app

Screen Recorder is an application that comes installed on the iPhone at the factory and can be an option for those who don’t want to use a third-party program to download Reels. As the name implies, the app allows you to record on video everything that goes on on the smartphone screen.

Prior to iOS 14, the feature was available by default in the device’s Control Center. If you don’t find it there, you will need to add it manually. Go to Settings → Control Center → More Controls or Customize Controls. Tap the + icon next to Screen Recording.

Once this is done, it is now possible to record. Before playing the Reels, access the recorder icon in Control Center, represented by the icon of a circle inside the other. Wait for the countdown and start the video.

When Reels is finished, end the recording by tapping on the red icon at the top of the screen on the left. Or, depending on your iOS version, return to Control Center and tap again on the icon of one circle within the other.

If the recording is muted, the option is likely turned off. To activate it, tap on the recorder icon and hold for a few seconds. On the next screen, go to Microphone Disabled and the option will change to Enabled. Then repeat the Reels recording.

On PC

The SaveFrom.net website allows you to download Reels videos online, through your internet browser, without downloading anything. The steps below can also be done by the mobile browser.

1. Open the browser of your choice and access the Instagram Web. Open the Reels you want to download and copy the link displayed in the address bar;

2. Then open a new tab and go to the SaveFrom.net website ;

3. Then paste the copied link into the search bar in the center of the site and click Download ;

4. On the next screen, the Reels will be displayed. Play the video;

5. Right-click on the player that opens. In the menu that appears, go to Save video as ;

6. Name it, choose the folder and save it as you would any other file.

How to save Reels

If by chance, you don’t want to download Reels on your cell phone or computer, but just save it to watch later, that’s also possible. And the best part: through a native Instagram feature.

Open the Reels you want to save and tap on the three dots icon at the bottom of the screen. In the menu that opens, choose Save.

To view your saved videos, tap on your profile picture or a puppet icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Then go to the three-line icon and then Salvos . The Reels will be in the All Publications folder.
