Instagram (beta) for Windows 10 Mobile

Over the weekend, a video revealed what was supposed to be the iOS-ported version of the new Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile.

Today, that app is evidently available to download for the public. We have just installed what looks to be a full-featured Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile on our Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

There is even a little notice at the top welcoming us to the Windows 10 Mobile Instagram beta.

Instagram (beta) for Windows 10 Mobile

From the app description:

"Thanks for using Instagram Windows Beta. If something isn't working, give feedback directly to the team by physically shaking your phone."

"Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world's moments. Transform your everyday photos and videos into works of art and share them with your family and friends."

"See the world through somebody else's eyes by following not only the people you know, but inspirational Instagrammers, photographers, athletes, celebrities and fashion icons. Every time you open Instagram, you'll see new photos and videos from your closest friends, plus breathtaking moments shared by creative people across the globe."

Over 400 million people use Instagram to:

  • Edit photos and videos with free, custom-designed filters.
  • Improve photos with 10 advanced creative tools to change brightness, contrast and saturation as well as shadows, highlights and perspective.
  • Find people to follow based on the accounts and photos you already love.
  • Connect with Instagrammers all over the world and keep up with their photos and videos.
  • Send private photo and video messages directly to friends.

Instagram (beta) for Windows 10 Mobile

Under the 'What's new in this version' there are the following notes for known issues:

  • Facebook login
  • "Share to" functionality
  • Crashes/stability in creation workflow

We can confirm some instability issues including taking photos and using the editor to post then the images. However, all the features appear to be there we had no issues logging into our existing account. App performance is not as good at 6tag, but this is an early v1 beta.

We'll be posting a hands-on video shortly, but for now, feel free to grab the app while it is still open. The app is not available for Windows 10 for PC, and there is no mention if it will become available in the future or if this will be a mobile-only app experience.

Update: We have been told that the Instagram beta app is not ported using Project Islandwood (iOS), but instead is using Facebook's own Osmeta technology.
