You will be able to still see the content that was previously loaded before you lost Internet.

Instagram has announced that it's adding offline support to its Android app. Instagram is already testing this offline mode feature in the beta version of its Android app. If you are wondering how it works, its pretty simple- when your device gets access to the Internet after being offline, all the actions done by you will then be registered in the background.

Moreover, Instagram users can explore your own profile even in offline mode.

It's one of the smartest things to do; and could help boost an app that is already becoming the toast of many users across the world.

Recently, Instagram revealed that more than 600 million people use the service at least once a month, called the Monthly Active Users or MAUs, and more than three-fourth of those users are located outside the United States. I was able to use the "like" feature in New York City, but none of the others.

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.

A couple of days after launching its own version of Stories, publishers began flooding the Facebook-owned company. We can expect this Instagram feature to be rolled out soon as Snapchat supports the same.

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

More and more brands are seeing its creative service.
