Save Facebook videos on iPhone

Open Friendly on your iPhone. In contrast to the Facebook app, you can save videos that were uploaded to Facebook on your iPhone.

A pop-up menu will appear where you have to choose one of the many options. You can either instantly share the video with your friends on Facebook or on other apps. You could also click Download Video to Camera Roll to save the video on your iPhone.

You will see the download progress at the bottom. Depending on your Wi-Fi connection and the video size, it can take a few seconds.

Once the progress bar is gone, you can open the Photos app. You should be able to see the video in the Videos or Recently Downloaded folder. You can obviously watch, edit or share it just like every other video.
