Instagram aligns its Windows 10 Mobile UI with the app's new look for Android and iOS
If you're a Windows 10 Mobile user, we have some good news for you. Popular picture and video-sharing app Instagram has been updated to version 8.0.0.0. With the update, the UI for the app now matches the new cleaner black and white look found on the iOS and Android versions of the app. And Instagram also has a new logo for the Windows 10 Mobile app.

Instagram, with over 400 million members, was purchased by Facebook for approximately $1 billion back in 2012. At the time, Instagram had not yet launched its Windows Phone app. In order to put pressure on Instagram's developers to create a Windows Phone app, Nokia listed an app called #2InstaWithLove which applied an Instagram-like filter to a photograph, added the #2InstaWithLove hashtag, and posted it on social media. The idea at the time was to show the app's developers that there were plenty of Windows Phone users waiting for an Instagram app.

Microsoft tried to get one over on Windows Phone users back in 2013 when it posted an Instagram app in the Windows Phone Store. Unfortunately, it was an April Fool's joke. It was no joke earlier this year when Instagram finally launched a beta version for Windows 10 Mobile.

But now, Instagram is not only available for Windows 10 Mobile users, it even looks just like the iOS and Android versions of the app. You can head to the Windows Store to make sure that you have the updated version, or tap on the sourcelink to accomplish the same thing. And clicking on the slideshow will show you what the new UI looks like.
