Promises of a native Instagram app for Android users seem as old as time itself, but CEO Kevin Systrom says we can still expect to be sharing photos from our Google-laden devices in the future. At this week’s LeWeb conference, Systrom told attendees that he currently has a two-person team devoted to bringing hip photo filters to Android. Considering that the team accounts for one-third of his six person staff, we’d say making the app available for additional platforms is a top priority.

When Instagram does finally make its way over to Android, it may be accompanied by new ads or other or other ways to monetize the service, as Systrom spoke of “extremely engaging” ways the company has planned to create revenue streams from their mobile app.
