Did you know that Instagram allows you to save your Reels videos as drafts before sharing them? For instance, if you’re interrupted in the middle of creating a Reel, you can save the content you’ve created so far as a draft and come back to it at a later time, rather than being required to start your video over from scratch. Our guide will show you how to save a Reel as a draft in the Instagram application.
