Like TikTok, Instagram Reels can include filters, captions, interactive backgrounds and more. If you're wondering how to download Reel videos, we'll show you some of the easiest ways to do so in this article.

While there is no option to download Reel videos directly on Instagram, you can save them to your device.

How to download Instagram Reels videos?

1. Launch Instagram on your smartphone.

Will Instagram notify publishers that I saved their Reel?

No. Fortunately, you can save other users' reels with confidence because the original publisher will never know that you saved their content. Users who change their Instagram account to a Pro account can monitor the number of saves, but they still don't know who saved their Reel.
