How to download videos from IGTV on Android

To download a video from IGTV, you must use a third-party app. The application, officially, does not let you save any of its contents in the internal memory. First of all, locate the video you want to download and open it. You can use the IGTV search.

Although several applications serve the same purpose, using SaveIGTV has some advantages. For example, you can similarly use this method from an iPhone, an iPad, a Mac, or a Windows PC. In fact, all you need is a web browser. On the other hand, applications that let you save multimedia content from services like Instagram eventually disappear from the store or are difficult to download. This method is much simpler, safer, and universal.
