Facebook Is Adding An Offline News Feed For Android And iOS

Facebook offline news feed appFacebook mobile app users will now never miss any post even if they’re offline because Facebook is now working on to develop an offline news feed for android and iOS Facebook’s apps.

Facebook offline news feed will  allow users to see new posts with an extremely weak or slow internet connection. When users go offline, the app will show those posts based on Facebook’s relevance. When they come back online, their news feeds will immediately display relevant stories which a user haven’t seen yet, instead of showing a spinner while you wait for new stories and it will display as they would have normally in a good connection.

Facebook is also developing offline commenting features for future iOS and Android apps. Now they’ll also be able to write comments for when they come back online. Once they’ve reconnected, the comments will automatically post.

Facebook wrote in a blog post, “These changes will help anyone who is on a poor internet connection — even those whose network connectivity is generally good but who have intermittent connections in places like subways and tunnels, or at large events. None of these changes affect News Feed ranking. We are simply showing you the most relevant content as efficiently as possible. We’ll be testing and rolling this out over time to gather feedback”.

This feature of offline commenting and as well as offline news feed changes, will be tested and rolled out slowly that’s why Facebook didn’t give a specific release date for the offline update.
