Instagram iOS and Android update adds new filter, support for 25 languages

Undoubtedly wanting to put the recent Terms of Service debacle behind it as quickly as possible, Instagram is directing our attention toward a new update for its Android and iOS apps. Most importantly, this update adds support for 25 different languages to the app on both platforms. There's also a little surprise waiting for users who can't ever have enough filters to apply to their photos.

The languages getting support with today's update are Afrikaans, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, and Turkish. That's certainly a long list, so a lot of Instagram users should have translation support for their language moving forward.

To make the deal even sweeter, Instagram has added a new "Mayfair" filter, which adds a "warm pink tone, subtle vignetting that brightens the center of the photograph, and a thin black border," to your pictures. Instagram says this is best used when you're taking photographs in well-lit areas, and that it works particularly well with the Lux feature. With the iOS update, Instagram will now automatically detect Facebook integration with iOS 6, which means that creating a new account or linking your existing one to Facebook will be much quicker.

On the other hand, the Android app will now allow Facebook page moderators to connect and share directly to a brand page. It sounds like a nifty little update for both Android and iOS users, and you can grab version 3.4.1 from the App Store now [download link] or version 3.4 from the Google Play Store [download link]. That is, you can grab them if you haven't already decided to ditch your Instagram account.
