Sometimes the most interesting clips can be found on social media. Unlike some WhatsApp forwards, you probably want to save these videos. But saving videos from apps like Instagram and X is not a straightforward process.

According to Statista, the number of X users in the world hit close to 430 million in 2021. By 2025, the number is predicted to reach approximately 500 million users worldwide.

Among those millions are users hopelessly attempting to save videos to their phones. To lend a helping hand, here’s a step-by-step guide to the process. It’s as easy as counting to ten.

How to save X videos

While X made it easy to save photos with just a few taps, it’s a different story for videos and GIFs. X doesn’t provide a built-in save button to download videos on its platform. While that’s a bummer, it’s not impossible to download videos from X.

With the use of third-party apps, users can save X videos to their phones, computers and tablets.

How to change your X handle? Revamp your X profile by giving it a new username.

Using a web browser on laptop or PC
