If you are an Instagram user, you can maintain multiple accounts in any one device at the same time! Not only can you check activity on each of them, but also remain active on all of them at the same time. Seems interesting? It is pretty cool really !
After testing the feature on both Android and iOS in recent months, the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app, Instagram, recently made it official this new feature that would help users smoothly switch between their many accounts on the same device. After a previous slow roll-out to multiple users, they can now add up to five different Instagram accounts and quickly switch between all of them. The feature is available in Instagram’s 7.15 version for both iOS and Andriod users.
The users can follow some simple steps to manage their multiple Instagram accounts. They can do so by selecting ‘Add Account’ option on the options page at the bottom. Once done, the users can switch between the differemt accounts by logging in username on the top of the screen and selecting the other account they wish to use. They will also make the currently active account most prominent from among the rest of the signed-in accounts.
The way Instagram will be handling notifications for multiple accounts is also an interesting aspect. This indicates that the notifications will be displayed depending on when you last logged in and the number of devices that are logged in to an account, this could mean that users won’t receive all push notifications for all accounts.
With this feature, all third-party Instagram applications will definitely face a tough time competing. Also the risk of user-data harvesting will reduce.
Recently, Instagram has been inching towards the world of advertising, and with the rise of profiles dedicated to businesses, pets, tourism, fashion, food and other things, this feature seems to have been inevitable, and Instagram has FINALLY made it easier to manage that.
We are sure this feature will definitely help fashion bloggers use this app even more and with much more ease!
