Instagram for iPhone & Android Updated: Brings account tagging & ‘Photos of You’ album

Instagram for iPhone and Android got an update over the weekend, bringing in some much-wanted features along.

Instagram photos of you

The app now supports photo tagging, so that you can tag any of your friends in a photo, similar to the way it works on Facebook (which happens to own Instagram). You can add friends or any accounts that you follow, such as a sports team, tv show or restaurants, etc. Only the person that takes the photo can tag people on an image.

Likewise, if someone tags you in a photo, it will now show up in a new “Photos of You” section of your profile, all in one place. You can ofcourse, review each image that’s tagged with you before making it public, or change your settings to prevent unwanted tags.

New in 3.5.0:
– Introducing Photos of You! Add people to your photos & share who’s with you
– Significantly improved quality of uploaded photos (for devices on Ice Cream Sandwich & above)
– Grid guides for the camera

Available right over at the App Store and Google Play Store.
