Instagram Update – Major Improvements for the User Experience


Instagram’s popularity skyrocketed last year when people started ditching Facebook after multiple scandals about user data privacy. Although, Facebook is the one in charge of Instagram and this is a win-win situation for the social media giant. Facebook is now making sure that the tens of millions of users who switched over to Instagram don’t have a reason to start searching for another platform and the way that it is doing that is by constantly improving the performances of Instagram.

With that said, Instagram benefits from a constant stream of updates that more than often are equipped with software tweaks that are taking its performances and user experience to the next level. In fact, a new update has started rolling out this morning and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.

Instagram Update

If you enjoy using Instagram in order to share photos and stories with your followers, then you should make sure to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. The reason why we are saying that is because a brand-new update which sports the version number is now rolling out and it comes it with lots of improvements.

We also want to note that eager Instagram fans who don’t want to wait for the update arrive via OTA (over the air) channels can also manually download and install it on their smartphones because the update has also been released in the form of APK (Android Package Kit).

Improved User Experience

As previously noted, Facebook wants to make sure that Instagram delivers a premium user experience and this is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new update introduces a bunch of bug fixes that are tackling various issues which sometimes caused the app to lag. Luckily, that is not going to happen again.
