At Facebook's F8 developer's conference, Instagram, the incredibly popular photo sharing and messaging service owned by Facebook, announced offline support for Android devices.

While it doesn't mean you can constantly use the app without an internet connection, you will be able to view any post that have previously loaded when you had a Wi-Fi or data connection, like and comment on them.

Any profiles that you've previously visited can still be viewed, along with any posts you've loaded in the Explore tab.

You will be able to save any posts to your own personal collection, as well being able to create your own new posts and save drafts. As soon as your phone connects back to the internet, anything you've created, commented on, liked or saved, while offline will be instantly sent to Instagram's servers and uploaded or carried out.

Instagram’s new stickers let you put selfies in your selfies

  Instagram’s new stickers let you put selfies in your selfies Instagram is adding some new features today, and in a nice change of pace, they don’t come from Snapchat. First up, you can now capture something called a ‘selfie sticker.’ It’s pretty much what it sounds like: tap the new sticker with the camera icon to capture a mini selfie which you can place anywhere in a story or direct message. You can resize them and have the option to use either an outlined or faded circular border.

Facebook has announced offline functionality for data-heavy app Instagram on Android , allowing users to use most of its features, even when the internet connection isn’t very reliable. The announcement was made yesterday at Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference.

Instagram app is getting an ‘ offline ’ mode that will help its users to use the app even in the areas with limited network connectivity. As of now , the feature has been announced only for the Android users .

There's no word on if and when the offline functionality will work with Stories, as for now they do still need an internet connection to load, nor has an iOS version been confirmed. TechCrunch has been told by Instagram that an iOS version is being "explored".

Offline functionality is good news for anyone that lives in a country where internet isn't great, developing countries for example, where Facebook Lite user number stand at around 200 million. It's also good if you know you're heading somewhere without signal, the Underground for example, as you'll still be able to get your Instagram fix.

Spotify adds lyrics explanations on Android .
Last year, Spotify teamed up with Genius to integrate lyric annotations onto its music player, but the feature has been an iOS-only staple for over a year. Starting today, Android users are finally getting the same benefit. Rather than letting you tap on specific lyrics and view explanations as you would on Genius.com, Spotify has built a couple of playlists that display information on some popular tracks as you listen. For some songs, it also includes background details provided directly by the artist.
