Instagram has always been introducing new features and even new apps to help users make their pictures look good. The company is rolling out an update to its Android app, with a slightly redesigned interface, and new “swipeable” filters.
In the previous version of Instagram, after you pick a photo to post, you will need to crop before you get the editing tools with filters listed down the bottom. This new version lets you skip past the edit screen into a new page with quick filters you can access simply by swiping on an image.
For those who would like to get back the usual editing features, the “Edit” button is located on the bottom left of the photo while the opposite corner has a button for tagging people. There is also a new quick posting screen that lets you select from a list of nearby locations, and a new caption box. Instead of a small thumbnail, Instagram now shows a bigger image for you to preview before posting.
The feature is available on Instagram for Android version 7.3.0. If you don’t see it yet, you can download the .apk file from Droid Life.
