New Instagram Windows 10 Mobile

Last week, Instagram decided to give itself a makeover with a new logo and a more modern look for its somewhat dated UI. While the apps for Android and iOS were updated within 48 hours of the announcement the Windows 10 Mobile version was slated for a few days later. That update is now live in the Store as promised.

Version 8.0 of the Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile, which itself is a port from iOS, now has an all new UI, colorful logo and hopefully some improvements as well to scrolling and other minor bug fixes (for those we'll have to wait and see).

Regarding the specific changelog, which came before the app update went live, Instagram notes the following changes:

We have a new look! Our updated icon stays true to the camera and rainbow. The simpler design puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app."

For now, you can head to the Store and update your app or just grab the link below. Let us know below in comments if you find any other features or fixes as well. Finally, as others have noted you will need to repin the Live Tile to get the new logo to show.
