Instagram will soon work offline on your Android phone

Screenshots from Android Police show the app providing messages saying you're offline and the actions will be "updated when you're connected". You will still be able to leave comments, like posts, save posts (although putting them into the new collections feature wasn't mentioned), and even unfollow people. While none of that would happen in real-time without a connection, it certainly will once the person's device connects to data again.

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. However, you will be able to view all activities that took place on your Instagram field as soon as you reconnect.

Also, Instagram recently revealed that it's Stories feature had crossed 200 million daily active users, finally surging past the app it was created to challenge and upend: Snapchat.

Instagram reached a milestone last December when it clocked 600 million monthly active users on its platform.

Currently, Instagram downloads images on the fly - when you launch the app on your phone, tablet, or computer, it queries Facebook's servers for new content. Offline users will also be able to see profiles they already have as well as old versions of the Explore tab or their own profile.

Instagram for Android users can expect this feature to begin rolling out immediately.

Instagram has not only copied Stories from Snapchat, it has succeeded in reinventing the feature; attracting millions of people daily.
