How to Download Telegram Videos in 3 Ways

Whether you’re an Android or PC user, these 3 Telegram download video methods work.

Method 1: Download Telegram Video Using ‘Save to Gallery’ Option

You can download videos from Telegram using the app itself. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways to save Telegram videos.

Here are all the steps to follow:

[For Android, iPhone]

1. Launch Telegram and enter the chat where you received the video.

2. Tap the three-dot icon on the video and click Save to Gallery. If you’re an iPhone user, tap on Save Video instead.

The video will be saved to your gallery. Open the gallery app (Android) or the Photos app (iPhone) to find the video.

[For PC]

1. Launch the Telegram app on your computer.

2. Open the chat where you received the video.

3. Right-click on the video and choose Save as.

4. Select the folder where you want to save the Telegram video.

That’s how easily you can download videos from Telegram.

If you don’t see the “Save to Gallery”, “Save Video”, or “Save as” option, it means the sender has restricted others from saving the video. But, still, there’s a trick to download that video. Check out how to download Telegram private videos.

Method 2: Download Telegram Video Using a Bot

Bots make Telegram more exciting and popular by performing various tasks. From creating your schedule and sending weather updates to downloading videos, Telegram bots are super helpful.

In this method, we’ll use a Telegram bot (Direct Link Generator) to generate a download link for Telegram videos. You can then paste this link into a browser to download videos.

1. Add Direct Link Generator bot to your Telegram account.

2. To use this bot, you must join the Bot X Updates channel, which will notify you about any changes and new bots.

3. Copy the video link from a Telegram group or channel. For this, tap on the three-dot icon on the video and click Copy Link. On PC, right-click on the video and click Copy Post Link.

6. You can now download or watch the video.

Method 3: Download Telegram Video Using Online Downloaders

Another easy method of saving Telegram videos is by using online downloaders. There are dozens of websites you can use to download Telegram videos. You just need to copy and paste the video link on one of these websites.

In my tests, I found anydownloader.com and givefastlink.com to be working fine. Go to one of the websites, paste the Telegram video link, generate the download link, and download the video.

So, that’s how you can save Telegram video to your device.

How to Automatically Save Telegram Videos to Gallery

Manually saving each Telegram video can be time-consuming if you receive a lot of videos. Instead, you can instruct Telegram to save all videos to the gallery for you.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Launch the Telegram app.

2. Tap on three horizontal bars (hamburger menu) in the upper-left corner and select Settings.

3. Tap on Data and Storage.

4. Enable Save to Gallery for options where you want videos to save in the gallery automatically. Tap on an option to set the maximum video size.
