Instagram Beta Update – The User Interface is Now Faster


We think it’s safe to say that Instagram doesn’t need an introduction, especially since the photo sharing app has more than 86 million downloads on the Google Play Store. Instagram is so popular that it’s the only app which can compete against Facebook.

Nonetheless, we are not going to talk about the competition between Instagram and Facebook today and instead, we want to bring some great news for Instagram fans. The photo sharing app has just received a new maintenance update and we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.

Instagram Beta Update

The first thing that we want to mention about Instagram’s latest update is that it sports the version number and despite the fact that it’s rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels, not all Instagram users are eligible to download it right now.

The maintenance update is a beta release and therefore, the only Instagram users who can download it are those who are enrolled in the beta program. On the bright side of things, everyone who uses an Android-powered smartphone is allowed to create a beta account for Instagram and the process only takes a couple of minutes.

What’s New?

Even though most Instagram updates introduce new features and exciting visual changes, this is not the case for the latest update which sports the beta version number. The reason why we are saying that is because Instagram’s new update is a maintenance release and this means that the update focuses on improving the overall performances of the photo sharing app.

The way that the new update for Instagram is improving the overall performances is by introducing a handful of bug fixes and under the hood software tweaks which are not only improving performances, but they are also enhancing the software stability of the photo sharing app.
