instagram announces support for multiple accounts in the mobile app

Instagram has announced on Monday that its users can start logging in to its free mobile app with multiple user accounts, a feature that will be particularly useful for any companies who manage more than one account for social media purposes, or for individuals who have multiple accounts for various interests.

Instagram originally started rolling out the multi-account feature last week, but the official announcement comes out today via a Tweet pointing to Instagram’s blog.

    The “Add Account” button appeared for me just a few hours ago, though not everyone is getting this at the moment. Looks like a gradual roll out of the feature, and a very welcomed feature.

    Now this gives very little reason to keep these 3rd-party Instagram apps, most of which are horrible or at least the good ones took a turn for the worst and started including ads on their app asking you to pay €2.99 for an IAP to remove them. They’ll bite the dust soon enough.

    Mine showed up earlier today. Useful for me, so it’s a welcomed feature.

      Did it really go out all over the internet? It hit a few tech blogs. Not hardly “All over the Internet”.

    • They didn’t roll anything out last week. A few beta testers had the feature available last week.

      *Trolls come out of the closet for no apparent reason.
