Today, we’re excited to announce improvements to the way Instagram for Android looks and feels.
Since first launching Instagram for Android in April of 2012, we’ve come to support thousands of different Android devices of all shapes and sizes. In taking time to polish our designs, we’ve worked to make sure that Instagram feels native and at home on any Android device.
These changes mean a faster, more responsive app. Your profile screen now loads twice as fast, and we’ve cut the overall app size in half to increase speed throughout Instagram.
By making our design cleaner, we’ve also made Instagram for Android easier to use. We’ve simplified our visuals throughout our app, making use of valuable screen space for small devices and feature phones and rearranging our design to keep buttons within easy reach as you navigate the app on a larger device.
It’s the same Instagram for Android you know and love—faster, cleaner and easier to use than ever.
Instagram for Android version 5.1 is available today on Google Play.
