Instagram Reels has seen quite a surge since its debut. The platform was introduced as a short-video tool back in July 2020 following the ban on the TikTok app in India. So, since then, it has been an avenue of short-size videos for content creators all over the world but especially for the ones in India. 

Facebook-owned Instagram allows users to upload a 15-second video to its Reels platform, made using a rich music database, filters, effects, and ideas. Now although Instagram allows saving a video to your saved list in the profile, there isn’t an option to download videos to view offline.
