Instagram for Android is receiving a nice update today. The company announced on its Twitter account that a new update for Android users is arriving today that brings some of the features that it previously rolled out to iOS users.

Back in August, Instagram added the ability to automatically straighten photos on iOS, and today Android users are finally getting access to the feature:

There are few things more distracting than a crooked horizon in a photo. We’re happy to announce that we’ve developed a brand new technology that brings you straight photos instantly. When you take a photo with the in-app camera, you can now tap the new Straighten icon and your photo will correct to be level—it’s that simple. The straightening tool also includes a slider so you can rotate and adjust any photo—including ones imported from your photo library—as much or as little as you’d like.

The update also includes “new sound and data usage controls” for videos, but the update has yet to hit our devices so we’re not entirely sure what those consist of.

The updated Android app should be hitting Google Play any minute.
