Instagram has rolled out a major update to its Android app, making it faster and more responsive. Instagram has cut the overall app size in half to increase speed and profile screen load faster.

Along with the new design, Instagram update also bring simplified visuals throughout the app, allowing users to have more screen space, especially useful for devices and feature phones. Instagram has also rearranged design to keep buttons within easy reach for users using the app on a larger device.

The update to the Android version comes shortly after Instagram added a new slider for its ‘Lux’ enhancement tool. The new feature allows iOS users to tweak the intensity of the effect, similar to other photo editing apps such as Snapseed.
