How it works? It’s easy. Any posts users’ phone has already loaded while connected to the internet will be available to view, comment on, like and save. And users will also be able to create posts and save drafts.

Users will also be able to see content which was loaded previously, such as profiles or the posts they have visited already.

The new update should see Instagram in good stead in countries where mobile connections are faulty. And it’ll be interesting to see if company extends its offline functionality to its Stories feature.
