Instagram Windows Phone

They’re few and far apart, but they do come from time to time. We’re talking about updates to the official Instagram (“beta”) app for Windows Phone. Today we’re looking at what appears to be the third maintenance update to Instagram beta.

Let’s check out what’s new.

The official Instagram app for Windows Phone originally launched in late November. It was met with lackluster reactions, but we were very glad to at least have an official app in the Windows Phone Store. Since then it picked up an update to bring photo tagging support. Then a rapid update came out a few days later to fix some bugs. That was over a month ago in December. Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll find Instagram sitting at version 0.3.0.0 with the following new features:

  • Performance improvements
  • Crash fixes
  • UX refinements

Still no Instagram Direct support, but an update is an update. Instagram cites UX refinements, but nothing jumps out at us right away. There’s also performance increases and fixes for crashes. If you notice any changes sound off below!

You can grab the official Instagram app for Windows Phone in the Windows Phone Store or by using the QR code below.
