Any Instagram user will tell you, there’s always some great Reel that they saw once but haven’t been able to find it since. Typically lasting for 15-60 seconds, it is common to flick through Reels without noticing the name of the handle that posted it. If you want to revisit a great Reel, always save it for later. Once you save a Reel, Instagram pins it in the saved folder on your profile for later viewing. In this article, we show you how to save an Instagram Reel and view it later.
