The Instagram for Android app will soon get an update to version 5.1 which will bring a fresher and sleeker UI with overall stability improvements. The makers are touting this to be a major update, so expect some other surprise features to be on board as well. The developers have tweaked the app to work with a variety of Android handsets.
This refresh can be compared to the iOS version overhaul which was conducted last year with several new changes. Here, the Instagram team has also taken performance into account and has made some changes which will reportedly speed up loading times substantially. And for devices with larger screens, the buttons are now more accessible thanks to the internal tweaking done by the team. The same changes apply to smaller devices as well.
The update hasn’t gone live on the Play Store yet, but if you have already downloaded the app, you might receive an update notification anytime soon now. But if you’re impatient to get the update, you can manually download the .apk file from the link below.
