We reported two days ago that Instagram is getting some major changes that include a refreshed user interface for the camera app. You can check out more about it by clicking here. Nonetheless, the reason why Instagram is making headlines once again is because the developers who are in charge of the social media app have just released a new update for the beta version of Instagram and today we are going to present everything there is to know about it.
Instagram 18.104.22.168.114 (152930) Beta Update
Right from the start, the first thing that we want to mention is that the new update for Instagram sports the 22.214.171.124.114 (152930) beta version number and that it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels right now. However, there is a catch.
The new update is available only for Instagram users who are enrolled in the beta program. This means that the only way to get your hands on the new update right now is to become a beta tester.
Even though enrolling the beta program is the fastest way to access the latest updates, this also means that beta testers might encounter bugs or glitches. Luckily, there is a workaround and this implies manually downloading and installing the update. The trick to making this work is to download the update in the form of APK (android package kit), but not before enabling the “Unknown Sources” option first.
Instagram fans who are enrolled in the beta program or who are willing to download the new update in the form of APK should be happy to find out that the new update brings a handful of software tweaks to the social media app which are designed to improve its overall performances. Therefore, Instagram is going to run much faster and smoother than usual after installing the new update.
