Android users rejoice. Not just YouTube, you can now 'go offline' on Instagram too

Here's another reason why you should start using Instagram now!

When it comes to the social media apps, Instagram is undoubtedly one the best app available out there. In the recent years, it has grown from a simple photo-sharing app to a platform that has something for everyone i.e. for people and businesses both. After releasing a bundle of jazzy features in the past couple of months, Instagram is back with a sweet surprise that will melt your hearts away (not literally though!).

Instagram app is getting an ‘offline’ mode that will help its users to use the app even in the areas with limited network connectivity. According to a report by the Tech Crunch, the app announced the new feature at F8. As of now, the feature has been announced only for the Android users. But iOS users shouldn’t feel left out as the feature is still in the cards for the iOS app.

Interestingly, nearly 80 percent of the Instagram users reside outside the United States, an area that is ruled by Android, which is also a popular choice in the developing world. So, it’s only natural for the company to focus on Android and hence the developing world first.

The feature  – which Pinterest users will recognise – does not allow anyone else to view your collection. The update has been rolled out for Android and iOS both.
