Instagram update to finally bring multiple account feature to Android

Instagram has been flirting with multiple account support and now that is finally starting to become real to more and more users. A while back, the app got multiple account support for some users, but it was rapidly removed. Now the feature is back and it is here to stay.       Instagram announced today via a post that the new feature is officially in full effect. In order to get it, you will need the v7.15 update. The multiple account feature is beautifully involved into the app. You are able to add a new account from the settings menu and in order to switch between existing accounts all you have to do is tap the drop-down menu on your profile page. Your profile photo will appear throughout the app so that you know which account you are using at any given time. This change will basically make your life easier by letting you switch between a personal and a professional account at any given time.   You can download the Instagram app from the Google Play Store widget below. Will this new feature help you in any way? Let us know in the comment section below!      

Fingerprint purchase authorization for Android 6.0 devices supported on the Google Play Store

If you have an Android 6.0 device – i.e. Nexus device made in the last couple of years, plus a few others – you will be able to buy stuff on the Google Play Store via fingerprint purchase authorization. What it is, you may ask? Google has a option in the Play Store that allows users to authorize app purchases at the wave of a finger on the dedicated reader. This option is now available for Android 6.0 devices that have a fingerprint reader.       This fingerprint purchase authorization option is disabled by default on Nexus devices, which is a strange situation, in our honest opinion. You will not even get a prompt to tell you it is not activated. In order to bring it online, you will have to get into the Play Store settings and find User Controls. That is where you will activate Fingerprint Authorization, a feature that will prompt you to enter your Google password to confirm the change. After you do this, any purchase made in the Play Store will be authorized via a tap on the fingerprint sensor. You will still be able to use your password by tapping a button at the bottom of your prompt screen.   In order for the fingerprint purchase authorization to work, you will need a device running on Android 6.0 and its fingerprint APIs, plus a fingerprint reader. Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will be the first devices with this function, but any other devices running on Marshmallow Android 6.0 […]
