Instagram said Monday that account switching will be available on the popular photo sharing service this week.

The new feature will be available as part of Instagram version 7.15 for iOS and Android, the Facebook-owned company detailed in a blog post.

In the update, Instagram will add an additional account toggle under profile settings. From there, you can tap your username at the top of your profile to switch between accounts.

"Once you have multiple accounts added, you'll see your profile photo appear in places throughout the app so you can always tell which one you're using at the moment," the blog post said.

The feature was first rolled out to Facebook in 2010.
