Site allows you to download Stories and Lives from Instagram friends

The WatchMatcha site allows you to watch and download Stories and live broadcasts of any Instagram profile. The page shows suggestions of popular profiles in the world, but a search tool enables you to search for the profiles of friends through the username.

By opening the profile of the desired contact, you can watch the lives and see the comments left during the live broadcasts and download all the content directly to the computer.

How to stop following multiple Instagram profiles at once

Stories are downloaded grouped into a compressed file (JPEG images and MP4 videos). Live videos are downloaded into two separate files, one with audio and one with video. The user must synchronize on their own.
