Here is How You Can Save Drafts on Instagram on iOS and Android

Instagram is one of the most popular social networks out there, amassing over 500 million active users monthly. Now owned by Facebook, Instagram relies on still photos and videos for users to share their lives with their followers. Unlike Twitter or Facebook though, Instagram is all about publishing in the real time. You cannot schedule or draft posts, until now. Even though there is no option for you to schedule posts on Instagram, you can do the second best thing now, which is draft posts. Instagram is not parading drafting as a feature, but there is a way around within the app, both on iOS and Android. Here is how you can go ahead and draft posts within the platform, so that all you need to do is to hit the publish button to get the post out.


Step 1) Make sure you have uploaded a picture or that you have selected one from the gallery of your phone after you fire the app up.

Step 2) Once the picture is selected, go ahead, edit the picture and add the captions the way you would if you have to share it. Include the locations, tag the people that are relevant and see if you want to share the picture on social media platforms too. Once you have done all this, you will need to hit the back icon located on the top left of the screen.

Step 3) Once you hit the back icon, it will bring you back to the editing screen, now you are required to hit the back button again, which is at the top left of the screen, and you will see a prompt asking you to save the post as a draft.

Step 4) Whenever you want to post the draft, you will have to get into the application and just below the image you will see the image saved as a draft, which you can just tap on and publish.

So go ahead and save your Instagram posts in drafts and let us know if the method we told you about worked for you.
