The wonderful news is that Instagram has now made it possible to download Reels! However, there is a catch to this. It is only accessible through public accounts, which also have the ability to turn off the function. The fact that you can now download Instagram Reels onto your smartphone is really fantastic.
TikTok has had a big edge over Instagram Reels due to the fact that users are able to download videos from TikTok and upload them to other social media platforms. According to a tweet made by Instagram’s CEO, Adam Mosseri, the platform has now, at long last, acquired the capability in question. Take a look below at what Mosseri said:
What are the Steps to Download Instagram Reels?
For the time being, mobile users in the United States are the only ones who can access the function, and public accounts only, not private ones. On the other hand, if you have a public account, you have the option of selecting a setting that prevents other users from downloading their Reels. To take advantage of this function, you must first pick “Download” after tapping on the “Share” icon that appears next to each Reel. Neat!
It looks from the image that Mosseri uploaded (which can be seen on the cover of this article) that downloaded Reels will be watermarked with the Instagram logo and the user’s account name, similar to how TikTok handles it.
What are your opinions so far on the evolution of Instagram and the updates it has introduced?
It would appear that Instagram is now adopting a new strategy, most likely because they view it as a means of ensuring that people will see Reels on other social media networks. However, it does not go out of its way to support videos that are hosted on other platforms. Although the company enables us to post videos from TikTok, for instance, the company’s algorithms began pushing watermarked movies from competitors in 2021.
