New day, new guide dedicated to Instagram and Android users.

In fact, more and more often, I receive requests on how to download and install Instagram without the Google Play Store. To help all users who have this request, here is a simple guide that explains step by step how to do it.

Is the Instagram app not on the Google Play Store?

Of course, the official Instagram program is one of the most downloaded ever from the Android Google Play Store and you can find it HERE.

It is compatible with many Android smartphones and tablets, but in some cases users cannot download Instagram from the official Google Store.

For some reason, in fact, the app may not be compatible with certain smartphones or tablets, which may use an older version of Android. Or they don’t have enough free internal memory to download the app. Or there are other unclear problems that don’t allow you to download Instagram in the “classic” way.

Installing the program on Android is quick and easy.

First of all, I recommend downloading the APK file from the previous link directly from your Android smartphone or tablet to simplify things. If you prefer to download it on a PC or Mac, you will then need to connect your smartphone/tablet to your computer and transfer the APK file to your mobile device.

When the Instagram file has been copied (or downloaded) onto a smartphone or tablet, you will simply have to install it: it is a normal APK file, so all you need is any file manager to search for the file, click on it and start the automatic installation.

If you don’t know how to install APK files on Android and you need some guidance, follow this guide that I published some time ago and that still works great:

So now I’m pretty sure you managed to successfully install Instagram on your Android smartphone or tablet without going through the Google Play Store. 

IMPORTANT!!! If the downloaded program does not work, click on the 6 VARIANTS button and try downloading the version suitable for your processor/screen.
