Months after the iOS version got a new look, the Instagram for Android finally gets updated with a new flatter and sleeker design.
Since first launching Instagram for Android in April of 2012, we’ve come to support thousands of different Android devices of all shapes and sizes. In taking time to polish our designs, we’ve worked to make sure that Instagram feels native and at home on any Android device.
The new update brings a sleeker, flatter and cleaner interface for Instagram, making it looking very similar to the iOS version. Visuals have been simplified and buttons are rearranged so that phones with smaller screen size can have more space with easier to reach buttons.
The app is also faster and more responsive. Profile screens load twice as fast now and the overal size of the app has been cut into half.
