Download Instagram Videos on Android

Android is a great platform and best of all the smartphone devices.

When watching videos on Instagram on Android, the videos are automatically downloaded. You just need to locate the video on your device.

These videos are saved in the cache memory of the Instagram app.

If you are like me and clear the cache of your apps weekly, you’ll get nothing. But, not like me, you will surely get those videos stored on your Android device.

You can use your default file manager or ES File Explorer.

  • Go to Android>data>>cache>video.
  • Here, you’ll see various files.

Downloaded Instagram Videos on Android

  • These all are downloaded videos from Instagram you have watched.
  • Tap on any of the files (latest if you want to download just watched video).
  • Open it as a Video and it’ll start playing.

Open Files as Video

  • You can move or copy it to another location so that you can watch it later.

So, how’s this? I am sure you don’t know about it. But, now you know the trick and you can show it to your friends!

Using Third-Party Apps

If you don’t want these types of procedures to follow and want all videos in one place, use third-party apps. There are many apps that can download Instagram videos for you.

But, I recommend you to download only a reliable app to download as it requires your credentials. You need to log in using your account first to access these types of apps.

Video Download for Instagram is one such app which you can download from here available on Google Play Store. This app is quite popular and has 10 million+ downloads.

To download a video from Instagram, right-click on the three vertical dots of the video and copy the link to that video. Now, paste it into the third-party app you’ve just downloaded.

Quick Tips: To avoid all these hustles, use Instagram Plus or OG Instagram which adds more features including the photo, video download. You can also zoom over any post and profile pictures of any user either public or private.
