Instagram launching multi-account support

The photo-sharing app Instagram has quietly begun rolling out multi-account support for the average user. While this will be most helpful to those that have accounts for their artwork, accounts for their personal matters, and accounts for their cats, you’ll see the benefit for work-use users as well. This update will be appearing in version 7.12.0 of the app, popping up for Beta testers first. Of course you could also just head over to the APK download if you do so choose.

To add a new account, users will have to head to Options (under the three dots button), pull up, and find the “Add Account” button. Tap it! Once you’re there, you’ll be able to log in with multiple accounts. It’s like magic. You’ll then be able to switch them up just like you would in Gmail, just tapping the upper left-hand corner of your display to switch.

The iOS version of this update has not yet appeared.

If you’d like to try this multi-account support piece of action, you’ll need to do one of two things. Your first option is to enroll in the Instagram beta program. This will allow Instagram to provide you with early builds of their next release, giving you features early. Basically no drawback there – unless there’s a problem with the software, which there almost certainly won’t be.

Your second option is to head to APK Mirror thanks to Android Police and download at will.
