Instagram 6.12.0 introduces 5 new photo filters and management system [DOWNLOAD]


Instagram 6.12.0 update Android

It’s been awhile since we last saw a major update to Instagram — especially when it comes to new additions to the photo sharing social network’s filter set. With applications like VSCO Cam offering a mind-numbing amount of filters, Facebook-owned Instagram finally saw it fit to throw their users a bone by adding 5 new filters: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua.

Okay, those names alone wont paint a very good picture at what to expect when the update goes live in the Play Store later today, so here’s what you can look forward to:

You’ll also notice a slightly tweaked UI in the folder menu (more iOS 8-ish) with blurred out photos and the first letter of the filter being shown. Have to admit, we liked the old way better. Scrolling to the end, you’ll find a new “Manage” button where you can sort and remove the filters you commonly use / don’t like.

It’s still too early to see if this update fixes any of the upload quality issues Android users have been experiencing since the app’s inception but don’t get your hopes up.

Instagram for Android version 6.12.0 is available starting today on Google Play. You can either wait for the update to hit your Play Store, or download the update from us via the link below. Cheers.

  1. I’ve said it before and I guess I’ll say it again. If you upload a quality photo, a quality photo will be displayed. I have 14,000 photos (no lie) on Instagram and they display beautifully.
