Instagram Reels download feature

Meta-owned Instagram is rolling out a new feature that allows users to download Reels posted by public accounts. This feature was previously available only to users in the US, but now it is being expanded to users globally.

“Today, we’re thrilled to announce that you can now save Reels from public accounts to your camera roll. Each downloaded Reel comes with a watermark showcasing the creator’s Instagram handle. Originally launched in the US earlier this year, this feature is now accessible worldwide,” announced Instagram Head Adam Mosseri through his Broadcast channel.

“To download a Reel, simply tap the Share icon and select Download. Public accounts retain the option to disable downloads, ensuring creators have control over the distribution of their content. If a particular Reel isn’t downloadable, don’t worry—just tap the three dots and Save it for later viewing within the app,” he added.

If an Instagram account is public, anyone can download and share Reels, unless they change the settings. By default, downloading is disabled for public accounts of users who are under 18, but they can still enable it. In contrast, private accounts come with more privacy, and no one can download their Reels unless they switch their account to public.

The new feature of downloading Reels is now rolling out to all Instagram users globally. This feature will make it easier and more convenient for users to save and share Instagram Reels.

FTC investigating Facebook-Instagram deal'

The US Federal Trade Commission has reached out to Google and Twitter in an investigation into Facebook's $1 billion acquisition of photo-sharing service Instagram, a source familiar with the probe told Reuters.

It was not immediately clear what specific information the FTC was looking for, the source said. The Commission automatically initiates a review of any acquisition of significant size.

The acquisition of the top photo-sharing service on the internet is a crucial part of Facebook's strategy to bolster its mobile offerings, at a time when consumers are increasingly accessing the internet through smartphones.

Facebook had said it hopes to complete the deal -- the largest in Facebook's history -- in the second quarter, but some observers think that may be an ambitious target, given the size of the deal and Facebook's status as the world's No.1 internet social network with roughly 900 million users.

The FTC's review of the deal comes as Facebook is preparing to raise as much as $12 billion in a record-breaking initial public offering that could occur as soon as next week.

Some investors have cited Facebook's limited advertising revenue from the mobile versions of its service as a potential concern with regards to the company's long-term growth potential.

Facebook and Twitter declined to comment. Google was not immediately available for comment.
