Instagram rolls out a ‘’Save Draft’’ feature to everyone

A couple of weeks ago some Instagram users reported seeing a ‘’Save Draft’’ feature. Instagram was said to be testing the feature but we were not sure when it was going to finally roll it out. The Photo sharing app has now announced that it is rolling the feature to all users starting today.

The ‘’Save Draft’’ option is available when you hit the ‘’back’’ button on the app.  Previously this option would have discarded your edits. Once you create a post you can save it as a draft and share it later. You will not, however, be able to save your photo as draft unless you have edited it, tagged or added a caption or location.

You can tap your camera icon to return to your work, then tap ‘’Library,’’ to see your saved drafts below the title ‘’Drafts.’’ The feature really comes in handy, especially when you are so busy to post. Try testing the feature and let us know what you think.


The feature will roll out to all on Instagram’s iOS and Android applications.
