    Just changed iPhone 6 for Huawei Y6 and trying to install Instagram but get a message saying "Your device is not compatible with this version". Installed older version but that fails as it then tries to upgrade to the current version.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you installing from the Play Store? If so, what if you turn off the automatic update feature and stick with the older version?

    I recently bought a Huawei Y6 2018 and I cannot download Instagram. When I open the page for it on the Google Play Store it says "app incompatible with this device". I am sure that this is just because I have a brand new device and Instagram is simply behind my phone and will release a software update to accommodate for new phones. Is this true? Also is there any other way I can get Instagram?

    Welcome to Android Central! I doubt it has to do with how new your device is. It might be a regional thing -- what region of the world was your phone intended for?

    I also moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    I have just purchased a new phone. When I go to the playstore to download Instagram it says
    "Your device isn't compatible with this version"

    How can I fix this?

    Have you checked that your phone meets the software and hardware requirements, as described by the developer?

    Welcome to Android Central! It might also be a regional restriction. What part of the world was your phone intended for, and do you live there?

    Unfortunately it's up to each dev to determine which devices/regions are supported, and unless they change that on their end, you can't install the app through the official channels. You can always try to find an APK for the app and manually install it, but that comes with the inherent security risks and some companies might block access to their services from 'ripped' apps.
