Microsoft Store removes Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile
Instead of the app, Windows 10 Mobile users can try the Instagram mobile website on Edge (Instagram.com). The mobile site allows users to use filters, post photos, put up stories and more. As long as Windows 10 Mobile users don't mind losing the convenience of using the app, this could be a non-event.
Ironically, Windows Phone users pushed for six years to get a version of the photo and video sharing app. Facebook, the company that owns Instagram, didn't think that the puny market share held by the platform merited development of an Instagram app. When consumers cited the "app gap" as a reason not to purchase a Windows Phone handset, Instagram was usually one of the apps mentioned. But in March of 2016, the beta version of Instagram for Windows Phone finally surfaced, although it was limited to Windows 10 Mobile users. And now, the app is no longer available for the mobile version of Microsoft's operating system..
