Instagram is the world’s second biggest social media app, sitting right behind Facebook. This means that Instagram is used by more than one billion people on a daily basis and therefore, the developers who are in charge of Instagram want to make sure that the app offers the best performances and they are doing this by constantly pushing out software updates.
People who enjoy using Instagram should consider giving the beta program of the app a try and the reason behind this is that beta users are always the first ones to access all the latest updates. In fact, a brand-new update which sports the 220.127.116.11.119 (158452) version number has been released today for beta users.
Instagram 18.104.22.168.119 (158452) Beta Release
As previously noted, a brand-new update which sports the 22.214.171.124.119 (158452) beta version number is rolling out to beta users. Therefore, Instagram beta users should make sure to keep a close eye on their notifications panel because the update should arrive any minute now.
We also want to cover the fact that the developers of Instagram have released the new update in the form of APK. This is a special type of update format and the APK acronym stands for “Android Package Kit”. What makes this type of updates special is the fact that they can be manually downloaded and installed by Instagram users directly on their smartphones.
To top it all off, APK updates are available to all Instagram users, and not only beta users. However, there is a catch. All Instagram users who are interested in manually installing APK updates are first required to head over to their smartphone’s Settings panel and then enable the “Unknown Sources” option. Luckily, this can be done in less than one minute.
