The world's top photo app — now on Android

Latest version

Aug 16th, 2022

Older versions
Not too long ago, Instagram was just your regular über-popular photo app that was only on iOS. Nowadays, the infamous platform is a daily event in millions of people's lives. After evolving from a simple photo filter app, it took on many features to add a more social aspect to sharing your photos--quickly emerging as one of the top social networks among young and old alike.

Initially, Instagram's main function revolved around embellishing your photos with a series of filters and unique frames like XPro-II, Earlybird, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville, or 1977. But now, Instagram has scooped up features that originated on Snapchat, including facial filters (masks), live-streaming videos, stories, and the new release of IGTV.

Despite its many attributes, Instagram's ubiquity truly lies in its capacity to cause interaction among users who are endlessly supplied with heaps of the best videos, pictures, and moments on the internet. Easily find content relating to your interests by running a quick search and tag your posts to make them more visible by adding hashtags. Now you can experience a different view of the world from a more local perspective and instantly glance at other users' snapshots no matter where they're located.

You can also plug in your Instagram account to any other of your favorite social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or Foursquare simply by tapping on the social share button.

Obviously, Instagram will always be a simple photo-sharing app at heart for many users. But it's also a new way to express yourself and explore the world while keeping in close contact with people you care about and those with who you share common ground. For others, it'll continue providing hours of trendsetting activities for them to pursue.
