The Instagram app for Android received a major update this morning, bringing full support for shots taken in landscape and portrait formats. That means you are no longer restricted to just a square for your beautiful shots. 

Once updated, users can upload photos in landscape, giving you greater ability to upload wider angle shots. This is also goes for video, which can now also be uploaded in landscape, allowing for a more cinematic viewing experience. For portrait photo uploaders, the overall length of the photo will appear longer on your timeline, perfect for shots of skyscrapers or anything else you can come up with.

To celebrate this wide angle experience, there happens to be a short little teaser for the new Star Wars movie on the official SW account. You can view that here. Lightsaber action, anyone?

The update is rolling out to Google Play, so go grab it.
