How to Save Videos from Instagram

Instagram has evolved over the past few years. From a simple photo editing app, new features were added like adding videos to your story and you can now save videos from Instagram. This is something that the users are looking forward to as it will be helpful in saving those memories to their devices. 

Instagram was acquired by Facebook in 2012 as a free, online photo-sharing application and social media platform. This app allows the users to edit and upload photos or short videos and share it online. Users have the option to make their profile private so that only their followers can view their posts. 

Since Instagram is a photo sharing app, it has certain features like adding filters to the photos. You can also sync your photos to Facebook and other social media networks like Tumblr, Twitter or Flickr, which means it will be uploaded simultaneously and shared to those platforms. That’s just a great way to share updates to your social media followers. 

It was around 2016 when Instagram allowed their users to upload photo or video stories and called it insta-stories. This feature would allow you to share all moments of your day or share multiple pictures and videos and they appear together in a slideshow format.
