The Meta-owned photo and video sharing social networking platform Instagram is now allowing users globally to save reels from public accounts directly to their camera rolls. This feature was previously only available in the US. However, Reels saved using this process will still display a watermark featuring the creator’s Instagram handle.
Adam Mosseri, Instagram’s head, on his Instagram broadcast channel said: “Reels update, you can now save reels created by public accounts to your camera roll – any reel you download will include a watermark with the creator’s Instagram handle. We rolled this out in the US earlier this year, and now it’s available globally.”
Mosseri also revealed how the new feature will work in a screenshot shared to his broadcast channel. To download and save Instagram reels follow this simple process:
How To Download And Save To Your Gallery
– Open the Instagram app on your phone
– Now, find the reel you want to save.
– Tap the Share icon on a reel.
– Choose the “Download” option.
– The reel will be saved directly to your device’s camera roll.
Please note that Public accounts have the option to disable reel downloads. If a reel is not eligible for download, you can still save it by tapping the three dots and selecting “Save” to watch it later in the app.
In related news, the Meta-owned Instagram is also testing a new feature, allowing users to react and respond to notes in DMs using audio, photo, video, gifs, and stickers.
The new feature is still in the testing phase, so it’s not clear when it will be rolled out to all users. However, it has the potential to make DM conversations on Instagram more engaging and expressive.
“We’ve been testing new ways to react and respond to notes in DMs using audio, photo, video, gifs, and stickers. We hope this gives people new and fun ways to connect and interact in notes,” Adam Mosseri wrote Broadcast Channel.
