Instagram introduced Reels not too long ago. While you could always post videos on your Instagram before Reels was introduced, the point of Reels is actually to help users create engaging short videos using a huge library of music provided by Instagram. The reels are 15-second videos that you can edit with various sound effects and music. Basically, Reels is what you can do on TikTok but it’s on Instagram. If you create your own Instagram reel, you have the ability to save it locally in your device storage before posting it. But if your reel uses music from the Instagram library, the video is downloaded without it. Even if it is your own reel, you do not own the music; Instagram does. So, what if you want to download just the audio from the reels? You can save the audio on your Instagram to use it later, but you cannot download it locally. Or can you? Let me show you how to download audio from reels on Instagram.
Download Audio From Reels on Instagram
The audio is particularly useful if you do not like the edition features or Instagram and want to edit it on your computer using a video editor. Or you want to edit your reels on a separate video editor on your smartphone instead. But Instagram doesn’t allow that. There is no official way to save the audio from the reel locally on your device. You can save the audio on your Instagram but you cannot download it.
Fortunately, there are online tools that are not only safe but also functional. Unlike other tools where the video and audio both get downloaded making you manually edit out audio from the video, this tool eliminates the need for that extra step. This tool directly removes the Instagram reel music from the reel video and lets you download it as an m4a file. This allows you to use the music on any videos using any editing tool you prefer. So, without further ado, let’s see how you can do it.
The steps are easy so you will not get lost in between. Follow the steps to download audio from reels on Instagram:
Step 1: Open Instagram and go to the reel audio you have saved. This should be the audio you want to save locally. To do so, go to Profile > tap on Menu > select Saved. You will find Audio listed there. This directory contains all the audio you’ve saved.
Step 2: After opening up the reel, look at the bottom of the screen to see the music used by that particular reel. Tap on it.
Step 3: The audio page will open. There you will find a menu button located on the top left corner. Tap on Copy Link. You can share this link and download it straight from your PC
Step 4: Now, open the browser of your choice and go to this link.
Step 5: Paste the link in the text box and press enter.
Step 6: The tool will recognize the audio and open up a page where you can see a small audio player. All you need to do now is press or click on the Download link.
After the download is complete, the audio file can be found on your download folder as an m4a file. You can use the audio file as it is or convert it to mp3 using any converter of your choice. Cloud Convert is an excellent online tool that lets you do that.
