Do you like watching Instagram Reels and Videos? There are instances when you come across a Reels or Video which you want to download and save it with you for later viewing. There are options to save an Instagram Reels or Video on the app, however, you will not find any option to download the same. But this does not mean that you cannot download the Reels or Videos for offline viewing. You will have to download a third-party application for the same.

Meanwhile, for the uninitiated, Instagram Reels is a new way to create and discover short, entertaining videos on Instagram. In order to create a Reel, Instagram users can record and edit 15-second multi-clip videos with audio, effects, and new creative tools. The Reels can be shared with your followers on Feed, and, if you have a public account, it will be available to the wider Instagram community through a new space in Explore.
