At Facebook F8 Conference, Hendri, Software Engineer at Instagram announced its new offline mode features and explained how they implemented it. Users of Instagram can browse the images, visit profiles even in offline mode. Instagram on Android is getting (already has?) an offline mode.

Instagram reached a milestone last December when it clocked 600 million monthly active users on its platform. When a data connection is re-established, the actions made will be uploaded to Instagram's servers. The Google Search app on Android queues up searches when you don't have a connection, and automatically alerts you with results when a connection comes back online. The company is now working on "Offline" mode for iOS devices. The profiles you viewed before will also be visible when you're offline, as well as old versions of the Explore tab or your own profile. We can expect this Instagram feature to be rolled out soon as Snapchat supports the same.
