Instagram Gets Offline Mode on Android

Instagram Gets Offline Mode on Android

Offline mode could be a big boost for time spent in the Instagram app especially for users in emerging markets with spotty internet access. The feature will help the apps' 600 million users, 80 percent of who are located outside the US get a better experience with limited data connectivity and data plans.

Announced today at Facebook's F8 conference and reported by TechCrunch, it seems that Facebook will be giving Instagram users on Android an offline mode.

Users can like photos, save media and unfollow people, everything offline, and then when your phone has access to a stable internet connection, Instagram will complete all the activities and reflect the changes. Moreover, profiles visited earlier and stories that were loaded during connectivity will also be visible on the Explore tab. It also supports to create a store which implements PendingActionStore Interface, Manager and PendingAction. Reports say that people from NY are already able to get it to work on a phone running Android Nougat. Also, it is also for users who may want to download the app contents first while on a WiFi hotspot before venturing out beyond it.

This new Instagram development is particularly useful when you are online in areas where the Internet access is unreliable. It thinks offline features could help Instagram grow in developing nations where data connections are cost prohibitive - or non-existent. The new offline features doesn't work with Stories just yet, and there is no information if and when it will. It shot past 200 million users in less than a year.

As for now, there's no word on when exactly will be getting the Instagram update. Facebook said that as of November, the free connectivity program reaches more than 40 million people.

The feature is a part of Facebook's efforts to cater to the developing world. Chrome can store webpages so you can view them without Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, you probably can't use it yet.
