Instagram is slowly but surely becoming more popular than Facebook. Everyone is moving over because Instagram has a better platform that focuses on sharing pictures and stories instead of personal opinions like it is on Facebook. Add on top of that the massive Cambridge Analytica fiasco from a couple of months and it should come as no surprise that people are starting to like Instagram more.
Nonetheless, another reason why Instagram is getting so many users is because the app offers a premium user experience. The developer team who is in charge of Instagram is always “cooking up” new updates that introduce cool features, software tweaks and bug fixes. In fact, a new APK has arrived today.
Instagram 22.214.171.124.99 APK
The latest APK for Instagram has been released today (December 12th) and it introduces a new feature. The feature that we are talking about is called “Voice Messaging” and as its name implies, it lets users communicate through voice messages instead of texts.
What’s great about this feature is that fans have been asking for it for a long time. This shows us that Instagram’s developers are indeed listening to the fan feedback and that they are willing to make changes to the app in order to make people happy.
“In any message thread, tap and hold the microphone icon to start recording a voice message. Release your finger to send,” said Instagram in the patch notes for the APK.
Android Package Kit
For those who are unfamiliar with APK updates, this format is an acronym for “Android Package Kit”. Therefore, the new update is currently exclusive to Android smartphone users, but we can be sure that it will also make its way over to iOS during the upcoming days.
