Well isn't this a nice little game-changer!

It looks like an offline mode is going to be making it's way to Instagram users very, very soon.

Developers have claimed they've worked on ways to access most of the features of the social media platform without the need to access the internet.

The plans were revealed at Facebook's F8 conference on Tuesday, according to TechCrunch.

It's expected users will be able to like photos, leave comments and unfollow people in the offline mode, with the changes going through when you next reconnect to the internet.

It's said to be rolling out because 4 out of every 5 Instagram users are from outside the US, and developers want to be able to give those with limited access more chances to use the app when they're not online.

It's not known when iOS users will be able to avail of the same facility, but it is reported an offline mode for those devices is in the pipeline
