What You Should Know About the Instagram Save Feature

Instagram now has a “Saved” music option. It’s a convenient way to store your preferred audio files, so you won’t have to keep searching for them.

The result is analogous to building a “playlist” or “audio library” for your own personal use. It’s an excellent tool that will help you to use the same tracks in your videos. It also assist you in finding reels that contain such sounds.

You might have noticed the new Instagram Reels feature already, but you might not know how to make the most of it. With your Instagram-saved music, you can turn simple reel videos into a trapping movie that will scale your profile engagements.

This new “Saved” folder is accessible from the “Music” menu. The downside is that you cannot download music from the Music tab directly. Therefore, you’ll have to find another way to make your own “Saved” music folder.
