Instagram Reels Downloader App

We designed our Instagram Reel Downloader app to make it easy for users to download Reels on both PC and Mac, for easy offline viewing.

To download an Instagram Reel with Snapdownloader, just enter the Reel’s link in our app and set your preferred output and quality. Once you click Download, the Reels are instantly saved to your computer.

The best part about our download software is our bulk downloader. With it, you can download up to 100 Instagram Reels at once. This is far more efficient than using the Instagram app and painstakingly downloading each Reel one by one.

Download Instagram reels videos


Easy to use

Just copy-paste the link of the Instagram Reel you want to download and let SnapDownloader handle the rest.

Extract audio

Do you just need the audio from the Instagram Reel? Luckily, you can set the output format to MP3, AIFF, M4A, WMA, and other audio formats when you download your Reel.

Bulk downloads

Downloading several Instagram Reels at once is cumbersome unless you use SnapDownloader’s bulk downloading tool. We let you download up to 100 Instagram Reels at once, so you won’t have to switch between tabs constantly.

Simultaneous Downloads

If downloading 100 Reels isn’t enough, you can download a mix of Reels and videos from many other platforms simultaneously to have them all ready at once.

Queue Downloads

Have the first video ready as quickly as possible by queuing them up and downloading several Reels one after the other.

Schedule downloads

If you want to wait and download a video when you have more bandwidth, then you can save the download for later with our scheduled downloads. Your Reel will download automatically at the date and time you pick.

High-speed downloads

We’ve optimized our Instagram Reel downloader to make sure that you get your videos as quickly as possible.

Download from 900 websites

Far from being limited to Instagram, you can use SnapDownloader to save videos from several other platforms like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo, and TikTok.

Download private videos

Since many of your favorite Reels are made by your friends, who often have private accounts, you need to log in to access them. For this purpose, we have a built-in web browser so you can log into Instagram to download private Reels.

10 output formats

SnapDownloader offers plenty of options for output formats; both audio and video are available. You can download Reels and convert them to MP4, MP3, MOV, AVI, AAC, M4A, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, and WMA.

Convert Reels to GIF

You can easily convert portions of a Reel or an entire Reel to share as a GIF on Discord, Twitter, Reddit, and other platforms.

Download video metadata

To preserve critical metadata from a Reel, SnapDownloader allows you to embed all the information you need with the click of a button.

Desktop notifications

Keep up with whatever you need to do while SnapDownloader works in the background. Then, we’ll hit you with a notification so you can watch the Reel once the download completes.
