Instagram: Windows Phone is "very interesting" but nothing to announce

On Thursday, Facebook announced that it was adding video support to its popular Instagram photo-sharing app as part of a press conference. However, the app is still only available for iOS and Android devices and there's been no official word on when, or even if, Instagram might come to Windows Phone.

TechCrunch reports that, during a Q&A with Facebook and Instagram execs at the press conference on Thursday, the subject of whether Instagram would ever be released for Windows Phone was brought up. The answer was, "I think Windows Phone is very interesting, but we’ve got nothing to announce right now." The article did not specific whether a Facebook or Instagram representative gave the answer.

While the response was somewhat expected at this stage, the fact that the company considers Windows Phone to be an "interesting" platform could mean that some kind of reveal is planned for the future. An official Instagram app is certainly one of the biggest, if not the biggest, requests for Windows Phone owners.

Earlier this year, Nokia launched an online campaign, #2instawithlove, that encouraged Windows Phone owners to show Facebook and Instagram "just how passionate the Windows Phone community is" about bringing the app to the platform.
