The Meta-owned, photo-sharing application Instagram introduced another new feature for its users. After the latest update users will be able to download reels directly from the application and then can use them offline whenever they want.
Before this update, Instagram users were using third-party apps to download reels but now they will no longer need any other tool for the same purpose.
Prior to this new feature, users were only able to save the reels for later viewing or they were using third-party tools for downloading their favourite videos and reels.
While informing the Instagram users, the Head of the photo-sharing application Adam Mosseri said that now anyone anywhere in the world can download public reels directly to their devices for offline viewing experience.
The downloaded reels will contain the name of the original Instagram user from whom the reel is downloaded. It is identical to TikTok as the video-sharing app shows the user’s handle on the videos.
The newly added Instagram video downloading feature was released a few months ago but was limited to US users only. But now Meta has made this feature public for global users.
