Instagram releases new filter, gives Android ability to post directly to Facebook pages

Instagram released new versions of its iOS and Android apps on Thursday, including a new filter, bug fixes and new translations. Instagram for Android now allows users to post their photos directly to a Facebook page rather than their personal profile.

Previously, only Instagram for iOS offered the option of posting to fan pages. Android users had to share an image to Instagram, then manually post it to their Facebook page. Now businesses and public figures can use any device to automatically publish their photos to a Facebook page. Users can switch between different pages or their personal profile at any point by visiting their profile options, tapping “share settings,” “Facebook” and “Share Photos to.”

 For iOS, Instagram made the following updates:

  • Support for Facebook integration in iOS 6, allowing people to easily sign up for an account or quickly connect an existing Instagram account with Facebook.
  • The ability to select photographs from an album other than the Camera Roll.
  • Photos taken utilizing the front-facing camera will no longer be mirrored.
  • Fixed the inaccurate display of the privacy toggle switch present in version 3.4.
  • Fixed a bug that affected photo sharing for certain locales present in version 3.4.
  • Various bug fixes and improvements surrounding camera performance.

Both iOS and Android gained a new filter called Mayfair. The company says it is ideal for ”evenly and well-lit scenes in conjunction with the Lux feature.”
