Instagram is (finally) adding multiple account support to its Android app


Update: Instagram has pulled the feature from everyone that had it this morning, maybe?

One of the most long-awaited Instagram features, multiple account support, is now being tested on a variety of Android devices. Most people started noticing the feature after version 7.12.0 of the app started rolling out over the last day or two, but the company has yet to make the addition official — and it appears to be a server-side switch that enables it…

It goes without explaining that multiple account support, well, lets you use multiple accounts on a single installation of the Instagram app. For brands, publications, and artists that have multiple Instagram accounts to manage (and a personal one, to boot), the ability to quickly switch between them is a blessing from heaven.

As you can see in the above video, tapping your username on the top-left of the screen should allow you to add and switch between your multiple accounts. At the bottom of the options menu, additionally, you’ll have the option to either 1) log out of the current account or 2) log out of all signed in accounts.

You can find Instagram on the Play Store if want to wait for the latest version to hit your device, or you can head over to APKMirror and sideload it directly. No word on the feature coming to iOS yet, but one can hope.
