Despite the recent addition of a video download feature to Instagram, another Meta app, Facebook, continues to lag behind in this regard. While you can upload your videos, it does not have a feature to download videos from other users to your Android or computer. SSPDaily prepared a guide that will allow you to download videos from Meta to any devices.

Android Police writes, "Facebook offers a video saving feature. However, when you save it, it is only available within the app and is not playable offline. Facebook's video save feature is nothing more than glorified bookmarking."

So if you need to download a video from Facebook to watch offline, this guide is for you. We'll show you how to do it from a web browser on your computer, as well as from the Facebook apps for Android and iOS.

Download videos from Facebook to your desktop

  • Open Facebook and sign in with your account information.
  • Open your profile and go to the Videos tab.
  • Select the video you want to download.
  • Click on the three-dot menu next to your name and select "Download Video."

Facebook will then download the video to your computer.

Download Facebook videos to your desktop

Downloading Facebook videos from other users is a bit more complicated and requires using a third-party service.

  • Open Facebook in any browser.
  • Select the video you want to download.
  • Click on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner.
  • Select Copy Link.
  • Press Ctrl+T or Command+T on your keyboard to open a new tab and paste the link, then press Enter.
  • Remove www from the address bar and replace it with mbasic.
  • Press Enter again and check the mobile version of Facebook.
  • Press the Play button to start the video.

The file should open in a new tab. If it doesn't, right-click on the video and choose Open Link in New Tab.

Switch to the new tab and right-click on the video. From the context menu, choose Save Video As. Then choose a location on your computer and save the video.

How to download videos from Facebook to most Android phones and tablets

Google Chrome, installed by default on Android phones, makes it easy to download Facebook videos.

  • Launch Facebook on your Android phone.
  • Open the video and click on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner.
  • Select "Copy Link."
  • Open Google Chrome and paste the link to the video.
  • Play the video and click on it.
  • Select Download Video.

Open Google Photos and go to the Downloads folder to check your saved video. It's ready to share online.

Download videos from Facebook on Samsung Galaxy phones

Samsung Internet is the default browser on Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets. The Korean manufacturer offers it with a wide range of features and functions. Here's how to use this browser to download videos from Facebook on Samsung phones.

  • Copy the video link from the Facebook mobile app (see steps above).
  • Open the browser on your Samsung phone.
  • Paste the link and open it.
  • Press the Play button and select Save Video.
  • Internet will start the download process in the background.
  • Click on the "More" menu in the lower right corner and open "Downloads."
  • Check the download process.
  • Go to the Downloads folder in Google Photos to find the saved video.

If the above method doesn't work, use Google Chrome (see steps above) to download Facebook videos to Samsung Galaxy phones.

How to download Facebook videos to iPhone or iPad

Unlike Android, you can't directly download Facebook videos on iPhone using the mobile web player in Safari or Google Chrome. You need to use a third-party service.

  • Launch Facebook and open the video you want to download.
  • Click the Share button and select Copy Link.
  • Launch Safari and go to snapsave.app.
  • Paste the link into the field and click the Download button.

When you see the option to download the file in multiple resolutions, click Download next to the one you want.

When the process is complete, click on the download icon next to the URL bar and select "Download."

Click on the downloaded file to open it.
