Instagram removes two of its apps from the Google Play Store

The Meta-owned social network appears to remain committed to moving forward with “spring cleaning.” Instagram has very quietly removed two more of its secondary apps from the Google Play Store and the App Store.

Several users have started sharing their discovery on Twitter, showing that the social network’s app portfolio in Android and iOS stores no longer contains Boomerang and Hyperlapse apps.

This discovery comes after Instagram officially confirmed that it will soon discontinue the IGTV app, shifting its video strategy to implementations in the main app. Since IGTV has been integrated with the main app for quite some time, it makes perfect sense that the standalone app is no longer available.

The same goes for Boomerang and Hyperlapse, which have been implemented in the Instagram app for many years.

For now, the Layout app appears to continue to be available for download in both app stores. But, given that it is already integrated into the main app, it should only be a matter of time before the social network decides to remove this app as well.
