Instagram Officially Supports Multiple Accounts On Android And iOS


After months of asking and pleading and waiting patiently it appears that Facebook is finally going to be releasing an update that allows users to manage and support multiple Instagram on their Android and IOS apps. This means like Gmail, you can login to multiple accounts and as opposed to having to log out and switch each time you will simply be able to switch to the desired account while still being logged into to both of them.

If you have multiple accounts you will receive notifications from those accounts if you have selected notifications to be enabled.

The new feature comes with the version 7.15 for iOS and Android, available in the App Store and the Google Play Store. If you don’t have this feature yet, head to your app store and try to update the app.
