How would you like to be a member of Instagram's new alpha program for Android users?
Being a member of Instagram's alpha program for Android users could be interesting. You will be among the first to test out new features and receive updates for the video sharing/messaging site. On the other hand, because these new features haven't been tested yet, your experience is likely to be a rough one. Still, you'll be able to tell your Instagram-using friends all about the new features and capabilities that are being whipped up in the Instagram kitchen.

This information comes from a verified Instagram employee who was trying to scrounge up some Android subscribers for the app's alpha program on reddit's r/Android subreddit. Since the post has disappeared, we can only conclude that the site met its quota and now has enough alpha members for its Android app. However, you can still use Google Groups to join the alpha if you so desire.

So if you're interested in becoming an alpha tester for the Android version of Instagram, click on the two sourcelinks below. One will take you to Google Groups where you will verify some information. The second link takes you to Google Play where you will be sent the necessary links to become a tester.
