Instagram Beta & Alpha for Android Community Report 📲 POCOPHONE F1

It has been a month since our last Instagram leak summary, so the time for a new one has clearly come. We have gone overboard trying to find as much nitty-gritty stuff over the Internet regarding upcoming feature additions and UI updates that are expected to come out to the Facebook-owned social media app. Remember that all of these are just leaks and they may not make their way into the release versions at all.

Instagram is working hard to keep its spot as one of the top social media platforms to exist. Though, rather than planning big new things, they are sticking with the small stuff at the moment. That aside, please, do let us know which of the listed features you are looking forward to the most and stay tuned for more.
