We’ve got some exciting new things in store with this update: new and improved language translations, a new filter, and updates to address the feedback we’ve heard from you!
Today, we’re introducing new and improved translations for 25 languages on Instagram! You can now navigate Instagram in your native language–on both mobile devices and the web–making it easier for anyone around the world to sign up for an account.
Enjoying photos on Instagram may not require written language, but translating Instagram helps all users understand how to use the product by explaining concepts like: following, liking, hashtags, photo maps & locations. We use very few words in our product, but when we do they’re very important words to understand. By introducing 25 new and improved languages, we can welcome even more international users into the Instagram community!
In addition to 25 new and improved translations we’re introducing a beautiful new filter–Mayfair! This filter has a warm pink tone, subtle vignetting that brightens the center of the photograph, and a thin black border. Mayfair works great with evenly and well-lit scenes in conjunction with the Lux feature.
Instagram will now recognize if you’ve enabled Facebook integration with iOS 6, allowing people to easily sign up for an account or quickly connect an existing Instagram account with Facebook. This means you’ll no longer be brought to the Facebook app or a web-view to connect your account. Read more about this new feature in our Help Center.
We’ve also included the following updates based on your feedback:
In addition to 25 new and improved translations and the new Mayfair filter, the latest version of Instagram for Android allows Facebook Page moderators to connect and share directly to a brand page. Note: iOS version 3.4.1 fixes a bug found in version 3.4 that displayed an inaccurate privacy toggle switch. It also fixes a bug that affected photo sharing for certain locales. Please update to version 3.4.1, released today (21 December), to resolve these issues.
