Ensure Your Mobile Device is Compatible with Instagram Apps

The very first thing you need to do is grab your iOS or Android mobile device. Instagram currently only works on these two mobile operating systems, with a version for Windows Phone also coming soon.

If you don’t have a device that is running iOS or Android (or Windows Phone), unfortunately you can’t use Instagram at this time. Only limited access to Instagram is available on the regular web and you need a compatible mobile device to actually use it.
