Instagram recently reminded everyone it is “no longer a photo sharing app or a square photo sharing app,” and indeed, parent company Facebook wants it to be the hub for sharing videos of all kinds, from TikTok-style Reels to YouTube-like longer videos on IGTV. As the number of videos on Instagram grows, so does the need to save them to view offline.

After all, you won’t always have a good internet connection. Why miss out on Instagram videos when you’re up in the hills or during your next long flight? Luckily, it’s possible to download Instagram videos and take them with you wherever you go.

Before we show you how to do that across all of your devices, it’s worth noting that these methods tend to break every once in a while. Instagram changes its APIs more than most other services, which means that the method for downloading videos, photos, or stories, keeps changing along with them. In most cases, the methods we recommended will work because the developers engineering them update their apps or automations regularly. However, there is a small chance that any of these methods could stop working, if only temporarily.
