The "Live" arrived on Instagram a few years ago to allow the transmission of live videos, an interesting function for chatting with other users that has a clear limit: if you decide to save the live after having done them, they are stored only for 24 hours in your profile, just like the stories. On the other hand, there are users who don't even save them, so you know that you won't be able to watch their live again once it's over.


To avoid losing your life or that of other users, you can download them and save them on your mobile, where you can see them whenever you want. In this article we explain the two methods you can use for download these live videos, both yours and those of other accounts.


How do I download the direct ones on Instagram?

The steps you need to follow to download live streams on Instagram vary to depending on who made these live broadcasts. If you've done them, it's faster and easier. The procedure acquires a certain complexity when downloading directly from other users, since it is a function that Instagram does not offer and you have to use other apps. Next, let's go through both processes to explain how to download both of them directly.

How to download your live on Instagram

Shortly after integrating the "Live Video" feature, Instagram added the ability to download live video. Thanks to this tool, downloading the live streams you do on the social platform is very, very simple, although you should be careful, as you can do it only right after you finish them.

At the end of a live show, on the screen that appears with information on the number of users who have entered your live show, you will see a button that enables live video download on your mobile. It's the down arrow, the usual download icon, and it's in the top left corner.



By clicking this button, the live video will be downloaded to your mobile, too if you can't see the comments or the hearts he has users you they have sent during transmission. Before sharing the live stream in your stories or deleting it, remember to click the download button if you don't want to lose the video.

How to download directly to Instagram from other users

Instagram doesn't have a feature in its application which allows you to download live streams that other users have starred in. For example, if your favorite singer has done a live concert via the social network and you want to save it, you can't do it without resorting to other applications.

The best solution is to record the screen while the other user is broadcasting live, in so that everything that appears on the screen is recorded in a video that will be stored on your mobile. To record the screen of your Android phone we recommend the following 4 applications:

  • AZ screen recorder
  • Mobizen
  • Game screen recorder
  • Screen recorder

The operation of the applications dedicated to screen recording is similar: you press the record button, you enter the live broadcast you want to record and, at the end, you finish recording the screen. This way you will have recorded the live on Instagram in a video that will be archived on your phone and that you can watch whenever you want.


This way you will see also the comments and hearts that other users have sent during the live broadcast, information not available by downloading your live broadcast. At the moment, recording the screen of the mobile phone during a live on Instagram is the best possible option to “download” this type of video from the platform when other users are doing it.


It should be noted that the screen recording is one good solution if you forgot to download your live show after you have finished it, but you have published it in your "stories". Therefore, if you record the screen during live playback, it will convert it into a video that you can keep on your mobile.


We do not say goodbye without reminding you that you can download the videos published on Instagram also from your mobile phone and computer, and that you can also download the photos from the social platform. Knowing these different methods, you will need it very little time to master the social network of the moment.
