How to Save Instagram Reels to Your Device

If you want to save Instagram Reels to your device for offline viewing, there’s a workaround. You will need to record your screen while the Reel is playing. Both iOS and Android have built-in screen recording features.

On iOS, you can add the screen recording feature to your Control Center by going to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls > and then add Screen Recording. Once added, you can start screen recording by swiping up from the bottom of your screen (or swiping down from the top-right corner on iPhone X and newer) and pressing the record button.

On Android, the process may vary depending on the device you have. Generally, you can find the screen recording option in the notification shade or in your device’s settings.
