In the top right corner of the post you will see three vertical dots. Click on these three dots and a menu will appear.

4. Copy Instagram post link

In the menu options that appear, tap on the option that says “Copy Link”.

Once you do that, the app will automatically record the video to your phone's gallery.

The downloaded videos are in your phone's gallery in a new album that was automatically created called “InstaDownload”.

You can also find your downloaded Insta videos by opening the app itself.

When you click on “History”, you will see all the videos you have recorded with the app. To share one of these videos on your own account (with credit to the creator, of course!), press the button that says “Edit”.

As with downloading Instagram videos to an Android, you can also use an app that you can download from the app store. The process will generally remain the same as above. 

But in our opinion, these apps are not necessarily the fastest way to record an Instagram video, which is why we bring you Video Screenshot Capture Solution.

  • Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize commands and tap on “screen recording”.
