As Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile efforts come to a halt, Instagram appears to be abandoning the platform entirely.

It is important to note that, Instagram also recently pulled the plug on its Apple Watch app. Instead of the app, Windows 10 Mobile users can try the Instagram mobile website on Edge (Instagram.com). Ironically, Windows Phone users pushed for six years to get a version of the photo and video sharing app. Facebook, the company that owns Instagram, didn't think that the puny market share held by the platform merited development of an Instagram app.

If you're happy to take these caveats onboard, gHacks' Martin Brinkmann has not only made the Ultimate Performance policy available for download, but written up instructions on how to load it into Windows 10 Pro/Home and activate it.

The Instagram app is no longer available for Windows 10 Mobile in the Microsoft Store. A recent update to Instagram for Windows 10 to version 30.1569.12133.0 added some new features, but removed the option to install the app on handsets running the mobile version of the OS.

However those users who already had installed Windows Phone can still use it like before.
