Instagram adds official support for multiple accounts on Android

Instagram today has officially announced support for mutliple accounts. Users are now able to add up to 5 different Instagram accounts and quickly switch between them all. Multiple ACCOUNT support has been added as of Instagram’s 7.15 version for Android

If a user wants to add multiple Instagram accounts, they can do so by going to the options page, and selecting ‘Add Account’ at the bottom. Once added, a user can switch between the various accounts by selecting the username at the top of the screen and selecting the other account they wish to use.

The way Instagram handles notifications for multiple accounts is a little different here as well. They indicate that the notifications “depends on when you last logged in and the number of devices that are logged in to an account”. From our understanding this could indicate that users won’t receive all push notifications for all accounts, which will help to save battery life on a user’s device.
