Offline Instagram users will soon be able to see their feed without being connected, but can also leave comments, Like various things, or unfollow other users while offline. All these would be processed on reconnect.

Instagram is extremely popular, but around 80 percent of its 600 million users are located outside the US, and a significant part of them have no data plan, limited network connectivity, or both. Instagram has just announced offline support for most of its features on Android, with such capabilities for the iOS version also in the cards.

On Google Play, we find that Instagram for Android received its latest update earlier today. However, there is no reference to its offline features. Going back to Instagram's announcement at F8, we now know that offline users would soon be able to see content they previously loaded in their feed, then interact with that content by leaving comments, following or unfollowing people, and even saving media. All these operations would be performed once the device is back online.

Instagram for Android has an impressive number of reviews - almost 48,000,000, with a rating of 4.5 out of 5. More than 41 million users who reviewed the app awarded it 4 or 5 stars. The next update could bring the interesting stuff, so stay tuned.
