Pretty Impressive

A lot was announced at Facebook’s F8 Conference on April 19th but one of the most intriguing highlights of the event was when it was revealed that Instagram for Android will now have an offline mode.

Here’s how it’s going to work –

If you’re scrolling through images and you’re stuck in a spot where the connection isn’t strong enough or just isn’t available at all, Instagram will keep images loaded up and still allow you to post, like, comment, follow/unfollow, and do just about anything else all without a data connection. Once the connection is re-established, the app will simply sync up all of this data.

Unfortunately, If you’re thinking that other users will see your post when the data connection is not too strong. Well..

The offline mode will be a bit limited as you will only be able to see what has already been downloaded, meaning fresh content will be missing completely. Regardless, It’s an addition that’ll come in handy from time to time.

Google Photos New tool will help you keep albums organized

Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.

As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.

A small detail that can save you a lot of time.

The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.

For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.

This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.

In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
