In that past year, however, Instagram isn't all that's grown. We've also seen the rise of a new mobile platform as tens of millions of people around the world have taken to Windows Phones. Our mission is to give everyone the ability to capture and share the moments around them, so our team has been working hard to bring Instagram to Windows Phone users everywhere.

We wanted to make Instagram available to people with Windows Phones as quickly as possible, so we focused on creating an awesome experience with Instagram's core features. We're not finished, and our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible.

Instagram is a place where people come to be inspired and connect with others, and we're thrilled to welcome Windows Phone users to the community. We can't wait to see what you'll create.


Unfortunately for Windows Phone and Instagram fans, the app does not have the ability to take pictures from within the app, meaning you have to use the device's camera first and then import it to the app.
