instagram_2Instagram users, prepare yourselves. Almost 5 years after its initial release, it appears Instagram is finally looking to add multi-user support.

According to a report from Android Police, a select few Android users have experienced a new interface that allows users to login under multiple accounts and manage each accordingly.

The version containing this new feature is 7.12.0, available to all Instagram Android beta testers.

While not everyone is in need of multi-user support, for photographers or creatives who manage multiple accounts at once – such as a business and personal account – this will be a gamechanger.

Currently, to use multiple accounts you must log in and out of each account, without any sort of ‘save my login’ feature – a pain in the bum to put it kindly.

There’s no mention of when this feature might make it to the public. But from previous ‘leaks’ via A/B testing, a month or two would be a reasonable timeframe to expect it, if all goes according to plan on the development side of things.

Will you be using the multi-user feature when it drops? What else would you like to see added to Instagram in the near future?
