Repost Instagram Post on Android

Instagram has several third-party applications that help you improve your experience, and among them there are those that allow you to share the video or image posts of others while respecting the original source.

If you need to repost Instagram video constantly, it is recommended to use a dedicated free app from Google Play Store. For that, I recommend iRepost. It allows you to easily repost any Instagram photos to your feed or save them to your Android device. You can refer to the steps below to see how it works. 

Step 1. Launch iRepost app, tap on the three dots button on the top right. It will redirect you to the Instagram app.

Step 2. Within the Instagram app, find the post with the video that you want to download and copy the post link. 

Step 3. After that, you will be automatically brought back to iRepost app and then you will have three options, Repost, Copy Hashtags, and Copy Text. Just click on Repost to repost the video to your Instagram feed. 

If you just want to save the Instagram video on your phone without reposting, then you can just open your File Manager app and navigate to Phone Storage/iRepost to find the downloaded Instagram video.  This goes the same with downloading Instagram images. 

What’s more, it allows you to copy and paste Instagram Hashtags. You can extract hashtags from your competitors' popular posts and use them in your post.

Step 3. You will be brought to the Instagram app. As you can see from the screenshot above, the video is already selected. You can edit it and post it to your Story or Feed.

This shortcut will automatically save the Instagram video to your iPhone Camera Roll and then repost it to Instagram. If you don’t want to save the video, you can add an action at the end to delete the video automatically after posting.
