Instagram Beta Launched for Windows 10 Mobile


iOS and Android smartphones aren’t the only devices in the world of Instagram anymore. Today Instagram finally launched its beta app for Windows 10 Mobile smartphones, expanding its reach in mobile photo sharing.

Windows Central reports that the full-featured app is currently available to the public in beta testing, which means there are still things that need to be ironed out before the beta label is removed.

“Thanks for using Instagram Windows Beta. If something isn’t working, give feedback directly to the team by physically shaking your phone,” the app tells users. “Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Transform your everyday photos and videos into works of art and share them with your family and friends.”

While basic functionality is present in the app, there are instability issues, says Windows Central. They ran into problems while taking photos and using the editor to post the images.


If you have a Windows 10 Mobile phone, you can download the app over in the Microsoft Store. No word yet as to whether the app will remain in the store or whether it will be yanked after a certain number of downloads.
