Microsoft announced today the availability of Instagram app for Windows 10 PC and tablets. The Windows 10 Mobile app was released in April. The app was built using Facebook’s own tool, OSMeta. It packs Instagram features like Stories, Direct, and Explore. You can also capture, edit, and share photos just like what the mobile app does.
The user interface of the app looks similar with the Windows 10 Mobile app on Continuum. You will be greeted by the same arrangement for mobile and when you go full screen, you will have big spaces on the left and right of the app. But you’ll be glad to use the app on a Windows 10 tablet on portrait mode.
This is a great addition to Windows Store. In all fairness, of all the Facebook services, the Instagram team is doing far better on Windows 10 compared to Facebook and Messenger. The app in now live and you can download it using the link below.
OS: Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile
Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they’re up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 500 million people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day––the highlights and everything in between, too.
Use Instagram to:
• Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools, and combine multiple clips into one video.
• Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text and drawing tools. They disappear after 24 hours and won’t appear on your profile grid or in feed.
• Watch stories from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed. View them at your own pace.
• Discover photos and videos you might like and follow new accounts in the Explore tab.
• Send private messages, photos, videos and posts from your feed directly to friends with Instagram Direct.
• Instantly share your posts to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.
Keep in mind that other devices running Windows 10 may not support certain features, like the ability to capture and upload photos and videos.
