The “Live” arrived on Instagram a few years ago to allow the transmission of live video, an interesting function for communicating with other users which, however, has a limit: if you decide to save the lives after making them, they are only kept for 24 hours in your profile, just like the stories.

How to Download Other User’s Instagram Live Video Stories
Instagram doesn’t have a feature in its application that allows you to download live shows that other users have created.
For example, if your favorite singer has done a live concert via IG and you want to save it, you can’t do it without resorting to other third-party applications.
One of the best apps that we can install on our mobile to download the live streams of other users on Instagram is AZ Screen Recorder. As the name suggests, it is an app designed to record everything we do on our mobile phone screen, therefore, it allows us to record live Instagram videos that any user is streaming.
AZ Screen Recorder is available for download and installation totally free on Google Play for Android devices, although it has a paid version with more functions and allows us to record the screen of our device in Full HD and QHD, it supports pausing of recording and manual continuation, record audio from microphone, save videos directly to SD card, etc.
Below you can find other possible solutions to record the screen while another user is broadcasting live on Instagram, in a way that everything that appears on the screen is recorded in a video that is stored on your phone.
To record the screen of your Android phone we recommend the following 3 applications:
All these screen recording apps works in similar way:
- To record, just enter the IG live Video you want to save/download
- Press the “record button”
- Record till when the broadcast ends, then stop the screen recording.
- In this way, you will have recorded the live broadcast on Instagram in a video that will be stored on your phone and that you can watch whenever you want.
This way you will also be able to see the comments and hearts that other users have sent during the live broadcast, information not available when downloading your live.
At the moment, recording your mobile screen during a live show on Instagram is the best possible option to download this type of video from the platform when broadcast by other users.
It should be noted that screen recording is also a good solution if you have published your live show in your “stories” and forgot to download it as soon as you have finished it.
Therefore, if you record the screen while playing the live stream, it will convert it into a video that you can keep on your device.
