Instagram is bringing a great new update to Android and iOS that allows users to seamlessly manage multiple accounts. The change means you’ll finally be able to access your personal and professional feeds — and the one dedicated to your cat — without having to log out and back in.

Support for multiple accounts is now available in the latest Instagram beta for Android — version 7.12.0 — but should begin rolling out to all users on all platforms soon. Once you have the latest version installed, you’ll be able to add additional accounts from within the settings menu.

You can then switch between those accounts by tapping your username in the navigation bar, which presents you with a drop-down list of all the accounts you have connected.

If you have an Android device, you can download version 7.12.0 of the Instagram app now by signing up to be a beta tester. Providing there are no issues with this build, it should begin rolling out to all users — as well as those on iOS — very soon.
