The pros of using Preview:

  • You can download the original video (you don’t have to do any extra editing)
  • Save with the original audio
  • Good for all Reels videos (up to 30 seconds)
  • Keep the original cover image (or change it) within the app
  • Prepare the caption in advance (if you want to)
  • The caption, hashtags and username are automatically copied (which is great if you’re reposting other people’s Reels videos and need to give credit)
  • Find Instagram Reels hashtags within the app
  • Schedule for later (if you want to)
  • Save the Reels videos in the app and post them later
  • Rearrange the order of your Reels drafts

What if you want to save your own Reels without posting?

Let’s look at the next trick.

How to save your Instagram Reels in gallery without posting, and with audio?

I’ve tried a lot of tricks.

And this one is the fastest one to save your own Reels in your gallery “without posting” on your account.

Other tricks involve editing steps or having to crop your video (which shrinks your video and makes you lose visuals or text on the screen).

This trick is perfect if you want to prepare your Reels in advance and schedule them in your Preview App, with the audio.

Here’s the trick:

Post your Reels on a secret account first.

Yes, it involves “posting” but in a separate Instagram account. Not your real account.

Then you can use Preview App to save your Reels with music.

You basically follow the exact same steps as before.

It works like a charm!

Just to recap, here is how to save Instagram Reels in gallery without posting:

  1. Post your Reels on your secret account
  2. Open Preview App’s Reel tab
  3. Press “+”
  4. “Repost”
  5. Find your Reels
  6. Press on the three dots “…”
  7. “Copy Link”
  8. Come back inside Preview
  9. Save your Reels to your camera roll

Done!

You can delete the Reels from your secret account once you’re done.
