News that popular photo-sharing service Instagram coming to Android has been talked about by fans for a while now. Now, its creators are opening up registrations in preparation for its coming release.

The registration provides owners of Android devices the chance to be the first ones to get Instagram, reported tech news website The Next Web.

“Using nothing more than a single form, Instagram fans can enter their email address to sign up for what could be a beta release of the app before it hits Google Play, Amazon’s Appstore and other Google-centric marketplaces,” reads the article.

Users only have to provide their email addresses, it’s that simple. The website speculated that users who sign up might be entitled to a beta release of the app, but we won’t know for sure.

Instagram first appeared on Apple’s iOS platform and has been a big hit since, with around 27 million users in its list. The app enables users to take photos, choose from a wide selection of vintage lens filters to transform the feel and look of the photo, and share it with friends via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and its photo sharing site.

Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram, noted that the Android version of the app is better than the original iOS version “in some ways.” This should excite Android users all the more. He also said that the reason why the app took a while to get to Android because the company was focused on iOS at that time.
