Screen Record Instagram Story

Ever since Instagram launched stories in 2016, users have made full use of it by sharing their experiences, announcements and many more. Still, many users don’t know how to record stories of someone on Instagram.

In this quick post, we will walk you through the steps you need to follow to screen-record the Instagram Story of your friend (or even your enemy) in just a few clicks.

Before moving forward, we would like to talk about one important thing.

Uses of screen recording Instagram Story

  • Share it with someone on WhatsApp, Facebook, or anyone who is not on Instagram.
  • Save it as a memory.
  • Keep it as evidence in the event of theft or another similar circumstance.
  • Capture the screen to learn something useful related to your studies or work.

Apart from these things, recording an Instagram story for professional and personal purposes has multiple benefits.

Let’s see how you can record them.

How to Record Instagram Story on your Phone/ Tablet

On iPhone / iPad

Step 1: Open the “Settings” of your device, click on “Control Centre”, and then tap on the plus icon next to “Screen Recording” to add this feature to your Control Centre.

Step 2: Go to your device’s “home screen” and launch the “Control Centre” by toggling the screen up.

Step 3: Press and hold the “Screen Recording” option, turn on “Microphone”, and click on “Start recording”.

Step 4: Finally, launch “Instagram” and tap on the story of any profile you want to record.

Don’t forget to turn on the “Microphone” because it is turned off by default, and you won’t be able to hear the audio from the story.

On Android phones/ tablet

Step 1: Toggle down the “Notification bar” and ensure you have enabled the “Screen Recording” feature from the options.

If there is no “Screen Recording” icon in the notification bar, tap “Edit” and add that feature to the list of options.

Step 2: Tap on “Screen Recording” after enabling it from the notification bar.

Step 3: Launch Instagram, tap on the story of someone and record it.

Do you need a third-party app to screen-record Instagram stories?

Absolutely not. 

The “Screen Recording” feature is available on most of the latest phones, and you can use this built-in feature to screen record Instagram stories.

If your phone is outdated and this feature isn’t available, you may use any third-party app to record the screen.
Some of the best screen recording apps for Android are AZ Screen Recorder and Mobizen Screen Recorder, and for iOS users, you can use TechSmith Capture.
