Messenger is an instant messaging app that keeps you in touch with friends and colleagues just by linking your Facebook account. Apart from sending text messages, you can even share the images and videos with your Facebook friends. You can also save the videos that you have received from friends for offline streaming. The saved videos will get stored on your smartphone’s camera roll or PC. However, Messenger lets you save a video that was uploaded directly from your friend’s device. You can’t save the videos uploaded from Facebook.
- Messenger app: Launch the app → open the conversation → long press the video → choose More → tap on Save.
