Instagram For Android Is Available For Download From Google Play Store [Updates]

Ads by Google

You’ve waited and waited, and it’s finally here. Instagram has finally launched on Android, bringing the famous photo editing and sharing experience to millions of eager Android users. Instagram for Android is available for download from the Google Play store, and requires Android 2.2 and up.

Only two weeks ago, Instagram opened registration for Android users who wanted to be the first to know of the upcoming launch. There was no word as to when this launch will happen, exactly, but the registration process itself indicated that the launch was imminent. Now, the anticipated e-mail has arrived, stating “Finally. Instagram For Android”.

On Android, Instagram looks right at home, partly due to the new not-so-iOSish look of the app. New users can create an account from within the app. An ‘unknown network error’ some people are seeing might be due to Instagram’s system coping with thousands of simultaneous new accounts being opened.

Instagram was originally launched on October 2010, and up until now was an iOS-exclusive application. Several Android replacements have popped up over time, including Camera360, Vignette and Hipster, but the buzz around them was never quite the same as Instagram’s. Will you rush out to download Instagram for Android?
