We knew that Instagram was coming to Android, it was just a matter of when. Today, the company has opened registration for Android device owners, providing them with the chance to be ‘first in line’.

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.

The photo-sharing app has had huge success on the iOS devices, amassing 27 million users. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom revealed that the company has and has two people working on an Android version of the app which he says will see the company “address an entirely new market” and see its audience double.

Upon registering, Instagram says it will be in touch ‘soon’. Just how soon remains to be seen but at least there’s a UI! (See subtle screenshots below).

Make sure to sign up, so you will be the first to know when it does eventually hit Android devices.
