Instagram for Windows 10 Mobile once again available from the Microsoft Store
Instagram follows the lead of a number of other high profile apps by dropping support for Windows 10 Mobile.
Updated April 19, 2018: Well, that didn't take long. Instagram is available for Windows 10 Mobile (opens in new tab) once again. However, it appears to be an older version of the app than is available for PC, which likely means it won't receive new features going forward. Still, it's good that the app remains available for Windows phone holdouts. The original story follows.
Instagram is no longer available for Windows 10 Mobile from the Microsoft Store. While the app remains available for Windows 10 PCs, its store listing has been updated to remove "Mobile" as one of its supported platforms (via OnMSFT).
Instagram was one of the bigger names that continued to support Windows 10 Mobile for some time. However, it's not entirely surprising to see it drop support for the platform. Windows 10 Mobile was essentially declared dead several months ago and, while it still receives monthly security updates and bug fixes, no more feature updates are planned.
Instagram is just the latest app to drop support for Windows 10 Mobile, following, most recently, the official Ring Video Doorbell app. For now, at least, you can continue to check out the Instagram app for Windows 10 PCs from the Microsoft Store.

> then to a 1020 Somehow it always makes me feel better when I know that I'm not alone in making bad decisions while purchasing hardware. *cough*Zune*cough*BB Playbook*cough*Windows phones*cough* The Zune is still great though, it does exactly what I need it to do. Perhaps that wasn't such a bad decision after all. > I just bought an iphone 6s. Yeah, I bit the apple too after years of bashing on them. I now wonder why I used to do that
With Windows 10 features moving forward beyond what was ever intended for Mobile, I suspect many apps will be dropping their mobile counterparts as they take advantage of the new platform features of Windows 10 proper. I only hope my W10M lasts until MS returns with a telephony enabled device.
3) Won't matter for the Andromeda/CoreOS era.
4) It was a bit crappy.
My android? It doesn't matter what brand, I decided to give Xiaomi a chance, good battery and I'm fine. For us, Windows 10 mobile users? What is dead may never die
Concludes Mobile is dead.
Today is back, now what
