It’s easy to share YouTube videos on other social platform and even on Facebook, but Facebook does not allow users to download the videos. Sometimes we like a Facebook video so much that we want to download it on your phone and share it on WhatsApp, Telegram, and Instagram. Here’s is how you can download Facebook videos on Android devices.
YouTube may be the largest video sharing platform in the world but Facebook is no slouch either. It does have more than a billion users like YouTube, they’re just not all sharing videos. Still, many of them, do share videos and you may have noticed this change on your timeline. More videos are being shared across Facebook than ever. Naturally, just like so many people want to download videos from YouTube and save it somewhere, people want to download some videos from Facebook too. If you have an Android device, you can download Facebook videos on Android pretty easily.
Unlike YouTube, which started offering to store videos offline some time ago, Facebook doesn’t, not yet. In this capitalist world though, every problem is an opportunity for smart people and many of them have jumped in to solve the problem of not being able to download Facebook videos. There are many Android apps and many websites that you can use to download Facebook videos. We’re going to mention what we think is are the best three options.
Download Facebook Videos on Android
Download Facebook Videos – All Video Downloader 2018
All Video Downloader 2018 is an app by Inshot Inc. which is best known for its Video & Photo Editor. This app can download videos from a number of social networking websites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vimeo, etc. It supports all video formats and offers a built-in player to play offline videos as well as password protection. The app requires you to sign in to the social network website you want to download the video from. It then basically makes you browse your way to that video and then you can hit the download button in the bottom-right after playing the video.
Downloads are fast and downloaded files can be accessed from any app like the built-in gallery on your Android device. To pick out a negative, the experience of downloading isn’t that great. That’s because you have to browse Facebook via the mobile website using the built-in web view. A better solution would be to use the Facebook app, tap on the menu button on a video that you want to download and select Save Video. Then log in to Facebook in All Video Downloader 2018 and head to your the Saved section in the Facebook menu to easily find the video you have to download.

Download Facebook Videos – Video Downloader for Facebook
Video Downloader for Facebook lets you download videos by simply pasting the link to it in the app. This is my preferred way of downloading video from Facebook or anywhere else that doesn’t support downloading. Instead of dealing with the mobile website and a crappy interface, you can continue to use Facebook from the official app, from Chrome, or any other Facebook client, whatever you like. When you find a video you think you’d like to download, just tap on the menu button on the video and select Copy link.
Launch Video Downloader for Facebook then and paste the copied video link. When you tap on the download button, you can choose between HD or SD options and the video starts downloading right away.
- Allows downloading Facebook videos without login.
- More download quality options if available.Can show the size of the download video, easy to decide which the video you should download.
- Download location option.
- Built-in full-screen video player.
- Auto-play video when scrolling.
- Multiple downloads and background downloading supported.
Download Facebook Videos – online downloader
The Google Play Store is full of apps that let you download facebook videos using either of the two ways mentioned above. So none of the apps above are unique in many ways. If you’re someone who does not download Facebook videos often you may not want to install an additional app. You probably want to download that one video in several months. Using an online downloader would be a much better option for you, in that case. These are nothing but websites that allow you to download Facebook videos just like the app mentioned above. Except, you don’t have to install them.
Even if you do download often, simply creating a shortcut to one of these websites is convenient enough. You don’t get a built-in video player, a history of all your downloads, etc. but you can download videos with just as much convenience. In this example, we’re using fbdown.net because it’s mostly a clean website without a ton of annoying popups and fake download buttons like many others.
All you have to do is copy the video link from the Facebook app, website, or any other Facebook client you use Facebook from. Then go to fbdown.net, paste the link in the box and tap on the Download button. Select from the available video quality options and depending on the browser you use, your download should either start or you’ll have to tap on the three-dot menu button on the video and select Download again.
Those are the three ways you can download Facebook videos on Android. Obviously, we haven’t mentioned plenty of apps and websites here but the ones we have should be more than sufficient for any use case.
