Instagram gets offline mode for Android users

Instagram gets offline mode for Android users

Instagram on Android is gaining a nifty new feature. It may be because you're in a rush, or because the idyllic scenery you're shooting is so remote there isn't a data connection. Instagram has figured out a way to make it possible even without an internet connection. Check and see. If you see it, let us know in the comments. The changes will be synced to Instagram's servers the next time you go online. Instagram enjoys a lot of patronage from outside the U.S., which explains the company's major reason for introducing offline functionality.

It was also revealed that Instagram had 600 million monthly active users across the globe in June 2016, up from 500 million in September 2015. With this support, users will be able to browse through Instagram's preloaded feed and can even like or save posts even without Internet access.

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. So, for example, you could like a photo and leave a comment on it, put the phone back in your pocket, and both interactions will be applied to the photo once the phone picks up a data signal again.

Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. The video then shows both cops - who are white - holding the man down before hauling him into their waiting police auto .

Profiles you've visited are also available in offline mode, as are cached versions of the Explore tab and your own profile.

Instagram for Android users can expect this feature to begin rolling out immediately. Coping Snapchat, Instagram launched Stories and recently they took a leap with over 200 million Stories users on a daily basis.
