Today Instagram is in the news again, only this time regarding updates to their popular mobile apps instead of privacy and terms of service changes. Today the folks from Instagram updated their app with multiple changes, as well as deeper Facebook integration. Which makes sense given that Facebook now owns the artsy app. More details after the break.
Instagram version 3.4.0 was released today and now supports 25 languages according to the what’s new page. They’ve also added another filter to their app called Mayfair, which is the second filter added in the last week. More options to be artsy and creative are always welcomed additions. Then they’ve integrated more Facebook features.
Instagram makes it easier to find friends and family that use Instagram, who are also your friends on Facebook. Then today’s update also integrated the sharing features a little deeper. Users can now share photos to Facebook Groups directly in the app, instead of just to their own page.
Instagram has been under a lot of flack lately over policy changes, where many believed they’ll have the right to share and sell your photos at will. They’ve reverted to their old terms and policies after a media backlash, so we’ll see where it goes from here. For now get the latest and greatest Instagram update from the Google Play Store and enjoy that new filter. Oh, they also state improved performance and a few bug fixes, as usual.
