The majority of the content you consume on social media is videos.
And basically, every platform has a way to save the video for later or maybe a better option to share it with other people on the same platform.
But when it comes to Instagram, things are a little tight. Yes, there is an option to Reshare, using third-party applications, but it is not the perfect way.
Maybe want to share the video on WhatsApp or other platforms natively. The best option would be to save it on your mobile phone so that you can send it on the platform of your choice.
So this is how you can save Instagram videos to your Android mobile
My favorite option to save Instagram videos on my mobile phone is Snaptube. It is a fantastic app, and we have talked about it several times on our blog.
It not only lets you download videos from Instagram but other platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube.
And since it violates the terms And policies set by Google, it is not available in the Play Store. But you can still download the APK file of Snaptube from other sources, and sideload it on your Android mobile.
APK Mirror is our favorite website that we trust when it comes to downloading APK files for Android.
Once you download the apk on your Android mobile, you can sideload it.

But in simple terms, you have to let your Android mobile phone install apps from unknown sources. You can do it by just checking the box when your mobile phone prompts you, while you are installing in APK on your mobile.
Copy the URL of the Instagram video that you want to download on your Android mobile then paste it in the search box appearing on the top of the snaptube app.
The Instagram page hosting the video will open inside the snaptube app with an option to download the video.
In some cases, you will also be able to select the quality of the video you want to download. If you are on a Wi-Fi connection, choose the highest quality possible.
Similarly, you can also download videos from other platforms as well all you have to do is copy the video link and paste it into Snaptube.
