If you're still holding on to your Windows 10 Mobile phone, whether for posterity or as a daily driver, Instagram is rolling out a slate of new features for the platform. Initially spotted by All About Windows Phone (via OnMSFT), the Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile now includes a new type mode for stories, along with the ability to allow friends to remix your disappearing photos, adding to a feature first introduced last year.
When sending a disappearing photo or video, you can set the option to allow friends to only view it once, or allow replays. If you set it to allow replays, friends can then "remix" photos and videos by adding stickers, text, or drawings and send them back. Think Snapchat, but with a little more back-and-forth.
The type mode feature is rather bland by comparison, allowing you to simply add a bit of text to a colorful background for sharing with others.
The app's store text describes this as Instagram for tablets, which is wording that has been present for some time. However, that could hint that this update and future ones are primarily geared more toward future Windows 10 on ARM devices rather than the dead Windows 10 Mobile platform. That could explain the bugginess of some of the new features on Windows 10 Mobile handsets, but it's just speculation.
In any case, the latest update for Instagram is available via the Microsoft Store now.
