Instagram: Windows Phone is interesting, but we have nothing to share


Yesterday Facebook and Instagram held an event to announce the ability to share videos on Instagram. After the event there was a Q&A session, and Windows Phone was of course brought up. The simple question “when are we going to see Instagram on Windows Phone?” was asked, and the answer was not great.

“I think Windows Phone is very interesting, but we’ve got nothing to announce right now.”

Where have we heard that before? From practically every company without a Windows Phone app. Does this mean Instagram for Windows Phone isn’t coming? Certainly not. Unless they have been living in a cave they are well aware that Instagram users want the app. I’m sure they have also noticed some unusual activity from some unknown devices uploading images. We are fairly confident Instagram will come some day. The real question is “when?”

In the meantime there are a couple good alternatives that allow you to upload images to Instagram. Check them out here.

    I have the Nokia Lumia 928 in my cart on NewEgg right now and then decided to check if it had Instagrm, and sure enough it does not. That’s kind of a dealbreaker for me as lame as that sounds. The phone is only $9.99 right now though…decisions, decisions.

    Creeping around on the internet I found that there might be an Instagram Announcement for Windows June 26th.

  • Check out an app called Instance. It can do everything a Instagram app does, including upload photos.

  • Ashley Bedwell

    Does it link to your Instagram account (Followers, following, etc.)?

  • Yes.

    I will probably stick with Instance, even when Instagram releases the official app. The third-party devs have been nice to us, Instagram hasn’t.

    If instagram doesn’t come out in the next month I’m getting an iPhone and telling my friend who wants to get this phone to not get it.
