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!

HTC One A9 from Sprint gets Android 6.0.1 OTA

HTC One A9 will get an update to Android 6.0.1 very very soon. This is the luckiest single Android device on the market at the moment because it is getting an update that only Nexus devices are enjoying at the moment. This smartphone is hooked up to Google somehow because it is getting updates sooner than most other OEM devices and it is receiving the monthly security patches well ahead of other flagships.     HTC One A9 unlocked was the first to get Android 6.0.1 at the end of 2015, and now the Sprint carrier version is getting the same treatment. This brings A9 to version 1.57.651.1, which brings about the new Android 6.0.1 emojis with some improvements and the following enhancements: Marshmallow 6.0.1 update Battery life improvements addition of Wi-Fi Calling functionality camera feature improvements system enhancements.   The OTA should already be on route to HTC One A9 devices. Just in case you’re not seeing the notification on your device yet, you should be patient because the release could be somewhat slow. Of course, you can grab the 1.86GB RUU file and flash it manually. If you do this you will lose your data forever, so be cautious. Or you can just wait for the update to reach you.   Source: HTC Support via AndroidPolice  

Marshmallow OTA for Samsung devices delayed until February

Some Marshmallow updates like to keep users guessing and Samsung’s newest Galaxy devices will make you have to wait for a while too. Android 6.0 updates were supposed to hit Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ in December, but the update is not here yet.       In some leaked documents we found out that the two devices will get the update sometime in February. Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have also been delayed with updates coming sometime in February/March. Galaxy S5 will receive its Android 6.0 update in April, if we are to believe leaks.   The update situation is pretty complex, at least when it comes to Samsung, who has tons of devices which function on numerous carriers. This makes their update a complex and long process. Since Samsung does not offer any guidelines on when they release their updates, we cannot expect any kind of apology on delays either.   If you have one of the aforementioned devices and you are waiting for an update, you will just have to wait for a little while longer.   Source: Droid Life
