Android version of Instagram gets offline mode

You can now browse Instagram even when you're offline

At Facebook's F8 developer's conference, Instagram, the incredibly popular photo sharing and messaging service owned by Facebook, announced offline support for Android devices. Users will now be able to view any profiles they have previously opened, as well as any posts that were loaded in the Explore tab, without Internet connection.

This year, Twitter debuted Twitter Lite, a mobile web app created to minimize data usage and load quickly on slower connections.

Most of us can get online all day, every day, but from time to time our travels can lead to some spotty internet connections or circumstances with no connection at all.

The current share price indicates that stock is -12.93% away from its one year high and is moving 81.45% ahead of its 52-week low. In its place, Morgan Stanley built out its wealth management division, which Gorman favored for its reliable income stream.

"For people in low-bandwidth regions, we've begun testing offline experiences that keep the Instagram experience consistent and let people consume and engage with content, even if they don't have service", the company said in the session's description.

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.

With the increase in the number of monthly active users, Instagram seems to have chose to follow the footprints of the Facebook app. They can also leave comments, save and like posts, and unfollow others.
