How to Download Instagram Stories:
If you want to download your stories, here is how to proceed.
Step 1: Open the Instagram story which you want to download and save to your phone.
Step 2: Now click on the three dots at the bottom of the story.
Step 3: Here in this menu, you will see a few options and one of them is Save, click on it.
Step 4: You will get two options, one is to save the story and the second one is to save the photo. If you want the story in your photo gallery, you need to select the Save Photo option.
Step 5: This will save the story in your photo gallery.
Now if you want to save a story of another user, then there is no direct option from Instagram. You will either have to use a screenshot option or record a video using the screen recorder on your phone. The best option is to take a screenshot using the volume up and power button (depends on the OS as well and might vary). This will instantly take a screenshot of the story and then you can edit it later. If the story is a video, then a screen recording tool would be the best option to record it.
Third-Party Online Tools:
There are also third-party online tools available to save your Instagram stories. StorySaver.net is one of them. Here you can enter the story URL and it will download the Instagram stories for you. You can also use this tool to download Instagram highlights as well.
