Downloaded memes will have an Instagram watermark as well as the account’s username. Following a testing period, Instagram now allows all users to download reels from public accounts. On his broadcast channel, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri revealed the change. According to Mosseri, the downloaded memes would have an Instagram watermark as well as the account’s username.
Instagram users can now download Reels from public accounts
Following an initial June rollout for users in the United States, this feature is now available to users worldwide. Users can download a Reel by using the “share” option, with videos transferred to a device displaying an Instagram watermark with the name of the account from whence the Reel was downloaded. Only Reels with original sound will be downloaded with audio; if a Reel includes a licenced audio clip, the sound will not be included in the downloaded movie.
Reels will only come with music if the recordings are original. If they use licenced music as a background, Instagram will erase their audio.
The new feature comes shortly after Instagram introduced the ability for users to share in-feed posts and Reels with only their Close Friends, extending the Close Friends option from Instagram Stories.
TikTok now allows users to download videos, making it easier for them to distribute their material across different platforms. Instagram’s next move is alleged to be a carbon copy.
