Recently, accessing Facebook via mobile phone has increased to a whooping rate – may be due to the Facebook app optimized for smartphones and the availability of low priced smartphones. At the same time, as you all knows, videos and photos are the most shared post types on Facebook, so if anyone wish to download photos or videos shared on Facebook on their device isn’t as easy as on the computer.

There are lot of users who access Facebook on their Android Phone and tablets. If you wish to download Facebook video on your Android device, for instance to view it in offline, there is a very simple solution. Here is how it is.

ES File Explorer is one of the most popular file managers for Android. Besides several outstanding features, the latest version (V.3.0) has an option to download Facebook video at high speed.

How to Download Facebook Video on Android

If you haven’t installed or updated ‘ES File Explorer’ to latest version (version 3.0), install it from Google Play Store. [It’s free]

– Open the Facebook app on your Android phone and view any Facebook video (Not YouTube video).

– A pop-up window will appear asking to “Complete action using”. Tap on ‘ES Downloader’.


– The video starts downloading immediately. You’ll also get information like remaining time, percentage downloaded, size of file, download speed and the save location.

Note: On the download window, you can see “Hide” option. Just tap on it, if you wish to continue on Facebook while downloading the video in the background. Of course, you can still view the download progress from notification drop-down menu. (Via – webtrickz)
