Instagram will never get dedicated app for iPad


A dedicated app of Instagram is not coming to the Apple iPad anytime soon. While the photo and video-sharing app Iapp is quite popular on Android and iOS, it is not yet there on the iPadOS. Marques Brownlee, a well-known YouTuber, highlighted on Twitter that Instagram does not have a proper app for iPad in 2022. In response to his tweet, Mosseri said, “It’s still just not a big enough group of people to be a priority. Hoping to get to it at some point, but right now we’re very heads down on other things.

In another tweet, he said, “I call these “finally features.” Things like supporting dark mode, scheduled posts, an iPad app, deleting one photo from a carousel, etc. Seems like we will have to wait a little longer to get an Instagram app for iPad because Mosseri doesn’t think that there are enough iPad users in the world.

Instagram will discontinue its IGTV app. The photo-sharing app announced that it is shutting down the IGTV app, to make video content “as simple as possible to discover and create”. “As part of our efforts to make a video as simple as possible to discover and create, we will no longer be supporting our standalone app for IGTV. Instead, we will focus on having all videos on the main Instagram app. We believe that this makes it easier for people to have all of these features and abilities in the main app, and are excited to continue to simplify and improve video in the main Instagram app over the coming months,” the company wrote.
