Windows: Microsoft’s new Universal Apps platform can feel a little neglected sometimes, but today Instagram is giving it some love. Now you can download Instagram for any Windows-based device.

The new app is out on the Windows Store. Since it’s a Universal App, you can download it on your Windows 10 desktop, laptop or tablet and it will work exactly the same on all devices. Well, almost exactly. You won’t be able to capture, edit or post photos from the desktop, presumably because Instagram wants to maintain the feeling of posting photos while you’re out and about, rather than uploading random stuff from the internet. Though I think the cat’s already out of the bag on that.
