Official Instagram app update for Windows 10 Mobile now lets you save photos for later

Instagram seems to be trying to appeal to Windows 10 Mobile users by releasing updates more frequently compared to the old Windows Phone 8.1 version. Not so long ago, Instagram introduced a Save for Later feature in its apps for Android and iOS and now this feature is available to Windows 10 Mobile users too. This feature allows you to bookmark interesting photos and have access to them later without having to Like them first. These photos will have a special bookmark icon on them and you'll be able to open them any time.

In the official blog post about this feature back in December, Instagram describes this feature like this:

Now you’ll see a new bookmark icon underneath posts in your feed. Simply tap it to save a post to a new, private tab on your profile. There you can see all the posts you’ve saved — and they’re only visible to you.

When you stumble upon a funny video you want to remember, a new outfit you like or get inspiration for an upcoming vacation, you can now keep track of favorite posts right from your profile.

It took Facebook less then two months to add this feature to its Windows app, which is an improvement compared to previous releases. Still, the app is lacking some minor features compared to its Android and iOS counterparts.

You can download Instagram from its page in the Windows Store right here.
