Instagram Adds Long-Requested Feature: Instagram has added a new feature that allows users to download public Reels. The feature, which is currently only available in the US, was announced by Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, on his Instagram broadcast channel.
To download a Reel, users simply need to tap the Share icon on the Reel and select “Download.” The Reel will then be saved to the user’s camera roll.
Mosseri said that the new feature was one of the most requested by users. “We know that people want to be able to save Reels they love to their camera rolls, so we’re excited to make this feature available,” he said.
The ability to download Reels is a welcome addition for users who want to save Reels to watch offline or share with others. It is also a useful feature for creators who want to share their Reels with a wider audience.
Not All Reels Are Downloadable:
It is important to note that not all Reels can be downloaded. Private Reels and Reels from accounts that have disabled downloads cannot be saved.
To check if a Reel can be downloaded, users can tap the Share icon on the Reel. If the “Download” option is not available, then the Reel cannot be downloaded.
The ability to download public Reels is a new and useful feature that will be welcomed by many Instagram users. The feature is currently only available in the US, but it is likely to be rolled out to other regions in the coming weeks or months.
