Pinterest has a feature that allows users to share content to other platforms, but it’s limiting. Luckily, there is a way to download videos.
Users can download videos from Pinterest to keep or share. If it’s something fun or emotional, users may want to share that with followers on another social media service. Pinterest has a feature that allows users to share content to other platforms, but it’s limiting. For example, on Instagram, people can only share posts with friends, not on the feed or in stories. Users can share pins with followers on Twitter, but it appears as a link. That’s not the type of engaging content that someone wants to post.
Pinterest isn’t the only platform users can download videos from. TikTok makes it easy to download a video right from the platform. YouTube also allows people to download videos from its app on the iPhone. Unfortunately, users need a premium membership to do so. However, there is a free way to download videos from Pinterest.
