The most loved photo-sharing social media platform is none other than Instagram. Facebook acquired Instagram in April 2012, and since then the platform has increasingly added features that made a favourite among the users — which a lot of times included blatant duplication of Snapchat’s features, including the popular Instagram story.

Stories feature was launched in August 2016, which helps users to post videos and photos, which vanishes after 24 hours. Instagram doesn’t allow users to download videos and stories posted by users. Thus to download these kinds of stuff, there are numerous apps available so that one can easily download stories and videos.

The below-mentioned list consists of some of the apps which are available for iOS, Android and PC users that will help you download stories and videos from Instagram.
