If you want to Download Instagram Stories, I’m gonna show you the easiest way to do this.
For this to work, you only need to be on a PC or Mac and use on this purpose Google’s Chrome web browser.
That’s because we’ll use a Chrome extension that enables us to download Instagram Stories.
Download Instagram Stories – the needed extension
You can go to the Chrome Web Store and search for Chrome IG Story Plus or follow this link. From this page you have to install the extension.
Once installed, you will notice a new colorful button on your browser’s toolbar.
Download Instagram Stories – the actual process
Go ahead and click that button. If you are logged into your Instagram account, it will show you a list with the most recent stories from people you follow.
If not, just log into your Instagram account and refresh.
You will notice that every entry you select from that list has a little down arrow in the lower right corner and sometimes on the left side too.
That’s the button needed to download Instagram Stories.
The Stories you download we’ll be inside an archive so you have to extract them before you can open then.
This extension can download not just photographs, but videos too (hence the archive compression for download).
Download Instagram Stories – not just for people you follow
This extension allow you to download Instagram Stories from people outside your bubble.
There are section on that page that gives you access to popular Stories around Instagram and also to stories tagged with a specific location.
This way, for example, you can download all recent stories posted in your country.
It is also possible to download live stories and you can find a specific user or hashtag by means of a search box.
So this is the easiest way to download Instagram Stories on a PC. In a feature post I’ll show you how to this on your smartphone.
