After being launched in 2020, Instagram Reels rose to immense popularity in India, especially after the nationwide TikTok ban. Like TikTok, Instagram Reels lets users create and share short-duration videos, typically lasting up to 15 seconds. Users create Reels to participate in cultural trends, collaborate with the community, and discover new ideas. While you can save the Reels you like on your Instagram profile, there is no way of downloading them to your phone. Luckily, there are a few third-party apps that allow you to save Instagram reels to your phone gallery. Today, we’ll show you how to download Instagram reels in gallery on Android.
