Instagram is all about sharing moments with your friends and family through posting images or videos. Instagram stories provide us with exactly that - sharing memorable moments through slides posted on our profile that last 24 hours.

Scrolling through stories can be really captivating as they appear as automatic image slideshows or short videos in a row in the upper part of your Instagram profile. So you get freshly updated stories each day while keeping up with what’s going on in your friends’ lives.

What makes Instagram stories even more amusing is seeing that your friends have multiple videos in their stories that continue in a row uninterruptedly.

If you want to learn how you can do that with your Instagram stories read the steps below on how to put multiple videos in your Instagram story and create one long row of a video unit.

Alternative methods of putting multiple videos and sharing on Instagram Story

Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t have the option to edit together several videos into one. But, TikTok on the other hand comes with advanced video editing tools, which allow you to combine more sequences of a video and then combine them to be published as one whole video. So you can record, edit and upload a video on TikTok, and download it so you can put it on Instagram Story.

This is how to download a video from TikTok, which you can use later to post on Instagram:

  1. Open the TikTok app.
  2. Tap on the Me button at the bottom-right of the screen.
  3. Go to the video you wish to download on your profile and tap on it.
  4. Tap the icon with three horizontal dots at the bottom-right of the screen.
  5. Select “Save video” and “Done”.

If you want to go a bit more pro, you can always use third-party apps for editing videos. Some suggestions you can use are InShot, Wondershare Filmora, iMovie, Movavi Clips.

If you want to put pictures instead of videos on your Instagram story, learn how to add multiple pictures to a story, which you can also upload with the Layout option in the form of a photo collage. Additionally, you can share a link in your Instagram story to a YouTube video with a link sticker.
