Instagram has finally launched a ‘save draft’ feature following months of testing. With the feature, a post-in-progress can be saved as a draft when the user hits the back button, making it available for continued edits and eventual posting later on. Such functionality is common on many platforms, including Twitter, and has been requested by Instagram users for years.
Saving a draft is simple. Once the post creation process has started (a filter has been added to a photo, for example), hitting the back arrow in the upper left corner of the screen will pull up a “Save Draft” prompt. Tapping that prompt saves the draft, which can then be reopened later on within ‘Library’ under the ‘Drafts’ designation.
