How to Save Instagram Stories from Anyone on Android Phones

You can now download and save Instagram stories of any user on your Android phone. Remember Snapchat? Or more specifically Snapchat Stories? Now you can find the similar stories on almost every major social media app Instagram, Facebook or even on few websites too. When Snapchat introduced them for adults to share their personal life with their friends they make sure no one can copy them or save them on their device but now is not the case anymore. You cannot take screenshots while watching stories on other platforms, but now you can easily save Instagram Stories on your phone.

Facebook, once tried to buy the Snapchat but to it started a copying spree and starting ripping of Snapchat’s best features. Facebook integrated them with its own social media apps such as Instagram, Facebook, Messenger and even WhatsApp. Personally I think it was a really lame move, but who’s to blame. Facebook’s platforms combined have more users than Snapchat alone. And bringing these features made their life much easier and little bit worse. Now you will see most of the users capturing stories and then sharing them manually on each platform.
