Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app acquired by Facebook for $1 billion last year, is finally coming to Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. The announcement came early Tuesday morning from the Nokia World 2013 conference in Abu Dhabi. “Our ultimate goal is to bring Instagram to everyone who wants to use it,” Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said on stage as he joined Nokia executives during the company’s keynote presentation. “We’re looking forward to watching the Windows Phone community use Instagram to capture and share beautiful moments in the coming weeks.” Windows Phone has seen numerous unofficial Instagram clients launch in the past, however many of them were eventually blocked by the company. According to Systrom, the Instagram app for Windows Phone will launch sometime in the next few weeks.
