Instagram’s Latest (161579) Alpha Update Rolls Out Today


We think that it’s safe to say everyone knows what Instagram is especially since there are hundreds of thousands of people who are making a living on the photo-sharing app. The interesting thing about Instagram is that more and more people are leaving their Facebook accounts behind and moving here. The reason why this is happening is because Instagram is all about sharing important moments from people’s lives and pictures instead of opinions and ideas like it is the case on Facebook.

Nonetheless, Instagram is also owned by Facebook and this matters because Instagram benefits from the same full-fledged developer support as Facebook does. Therefore, Instagram is updated on a regular basis with software improvements and bug fixes that are taking the user experience of the photo-sharing app to the next level.

Instagram (161579) Alpha Update

The best piece of advice that we have for Instagram users who want to make sure that they are always the first ones to receive access to the photo sharing app’s latest updates is to create a beta account. For example, Instagram has received a new update earlier today which sports the (161579) Alpha build number and the only way to download it is to create a beta account.

Improved Social Media Experience

As previously noted, Facebook is losing millions of users in favor of Instagram. Therefore, the developers who are in charge of Instagram want to make sure that their app delivers a premium user experience and powerful performance so that no one has any reason to switch over to another app such as Snapchat.

With that being said, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the new update for Instagram introduces a wide variety of bug fixes. While bug fixes might not be too exciting, they are quite important because they take care of various issues.
