Instagram gets offline mode for Android users

Instagram gets offline mode for Android users

As described by Instagram engineer Hendri, users will be able to see view the feed that was previously loaded when they were connected to the internet. The same features may make their way to the iOS version eventually, but that rollout hasn't taken place yet.

You will be able to save any posts to your own personal collection, as well being able to create your own new posts and save drafts. 80 percent of the community is outside of the U.S., and as our platform grows, Instagram must perform across an increasing variety of devices and networks to keep people connected.

Facebook said 80 percent of its users are outside the USA and many lack access to a stable internet connection.

While Facebook's Lite app has only been released for Android users, if Instagram introduces this feature for iOS as well, it will mark a deviation from company's strategy for the social media platform app.

Facebook-owned Instagram has every reason to be proud of its recent achievement.

Instagram, the picture-focused network of food photographers and budding models, recently learned a new trick: The ability to work offline. Cloned directly from Snapchat in 2016, the success story of the feature can be traced to the number of people who post update to their story or view their friends' posts.
