How do I test the beta version of Instagram for Android?

If you use Instagram for Android, complete the following steps from your Android to get access to and start testing the beta version of the app:

  1. Join the Instagram for Android Beta Testers Google group
  2. Tap Become a Tester in the Google Play Store
  3. Download Instagram from the Play Store to update your app
  4. Turn on automatic updates (the beta version of Instagram for Android will be updated multiple times per week)

You'll remain a beta tester until you leave the beta program.

Note: You need to join the Google group using the same email address that you use on your Play Store account. You can see which email address you've used in the past by opening the Play Store app on your Android and tapping the top-left corner.
