You can now browse Instagram even when you're offline

Android users will now be able to see content previously loaded in their Instagram's feed even if they are offline.

Any actions a user takes while offline will be completed once they reconnect to the Internet, and the company is considering developing an iOS version of the feature.

We've known about Instagram's plans to add offline capabilities to its app for a couple of months, and yesterday the news was made official at the Facebook Developer Conference (F8). The changes will be synced to Instagram's servers the next time you go online.

Moreover, the "Explore" tab in the app will also be functional offline.

Previously, users wouldn't be able to do anything with the app.

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. I was able to use the "like" feature in New York City, but none of the others.

A couple of days after launching its own version of Stories, publishers began flooding the Facebook-owned company.

For now, there is no mention on whether Instagram Stories will work offline or not.

In March, Instagram announced that it had reached one million business sponsors monthly across its app-a figure that represents a 400-percent increase from 2016. "Instagram's mission is to help people connect through shared experiences". Google Play Music uses artificial intelligence to cache music it believes you will like.
