The ability to download videos from Instagram should be a feature built into the app, but it isn't. Here's how SnapDownloader's Instagram video downloader app brings you this added functionality the easy way. 

Over a decade ago, when social media networks were still tightening their grips around our lives, Instagram emerged as a picture-first platform that people instantly loved. A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why Instagram soon become famous enough to seem like a threat to Facebook, who eventually bought it off. Over the years, user-shared video content has become all the rage on Instagram, with funny videos, short news clips, and DIY tutorials taking center stage. 

On average, Instagram users have been consuming 80% more video content year after year. It has led to the release of Instagram TV as a video-first platform to go head to head with YouTube, and Instagram Reels to counteract the Chinese social media giant TikTok. With millions of videos to watch, but no way to save Instagram videos for offline viewing, how do you download videos off the app? 

SnapDownloader's Instagram Downloader is the only solution out there that does not compromise the quality of Instagram Stories and IGTV videos when you download them. Built with a simplified user-experience in mind, there aren't any annoying advertisements that compromise your way of using the Instagram downloader tool for PC and macOS.
