    Hi guys, today Instagram got a huge update on iOS and Android with new filters.
    Meanwhile the windows phone version is still in BETA for over a year and the last update was in March of last year so it's been 9 months!
    Does any of you know why/when IG is gonna get an update and ditch the BETA tag?

    Ask Instagram directly. If enough people ask, they might do something.

    Except that 6tag doesn't have video upload feature and you have to pay if you need to upload a video.

    I tweeted at Instagram about it. Of course no response. Need more to keep tweeting them I guess.

    Also add The Weather Channel app to the list of apps that need updating. Live tile does not update unless you enter the app and the radar in the app has no functionality anymore. I switched to AccuWeather but their Live tile won't update either unless you open up the app.

    I think they'll skip WP8 and released it in Windows 10 when it arrived. I saw the Instagram icon in Continuum video (when Windows 10 announced)

    P.S. I created my concept about Instagram for Windows with Universal App already.

    Sadly no. The android version has video uploads, a fantastic photo editor built in, luminance slider, much greater selection of filters.

    Call me pessimistic but Microsoft has been keen on putting Instagram's app on its screenshots to show that it was available on their platform since it was released last year. But it's always been the Beta version. Furthermore, sometimes (like on the dummy phones in stores) they would erase the Beta tag from the tile and other times, like on your screenshot, just show the icon.

    So given that, I don't really believe it. But I hope I'm wrong.

    Never. At this point it doesn't even need it's own sub-forum. How Facebook owns them and updates the FB app but not this escapes me.

    They don't update the FB app. That one's Microsoft's. They do update their messenger app though.

    in a couple of months it might get a tiny .1 bump and that'll be it for another 2 years when they go bust.

    It sucks that they won't recognize that their are Windows Phone users that like to take pictures and want to show them off at Instagram. Lumia phones have the best Camera tech than all other Smartphones that use Android and iOS. Especially since Lumia Camera 5 will bring better software improvements for Icon/930 and 1520 users.

    Yes, we can say just use 6tag, but that isn't going to make Instagram to pay attention to us. All I'm doing is annoying them with repeating the same question going "Why do you hate us Windows Phone users? #iLoveWindowsPhone." I hope every Windows Phone users can do that.....

    Also, it would be great if Windows 10 had Instagram integrated in like Skype and Facebook Messenger for us phone users

    I think they are waiting for Microsoft to pay them again so that they would rebuilt the windows 10 app. Or simply they don't find enough interest in WP. Though they are still fine with the third party apps like 6tag, Instance and many more. *cough snapchat cough*

    When Windows Phone updates to Windows 10, our phones will have the same OS as PCs and tablets, just without the desktop. When hundreds of millions of PC owners update to Windows 10 for free, we will instantaneously be part of the biggest ecosystem in the world. Bigger than iOS and android combined. We will share the same Metro apps across the board as PC and tablets. Windows Phone market share will be erased as there will be no more Windows Phone. There will only be Windows 10. App makers would be either blind fan boys or stupid to ignore that. Especially if W10 gets above 50% of the PC market. Any app written for W10 will automatically be available for our phones.
