One of the biggest names when it comes to the world of photo sharing technology, Instagram has been around the markets since quite a long time, and the company has been coming out with a large number of changes to the way their UI works over the years. Recently, they introduced many new changes such as Instagram ads, Dual Accounts on Instagram, as well as changes to the way we view the videos. However, in their latest update, Instagram has now revealed a new Instagram Icon.
With the new Instagram Icon, the company has written a blog post, stating: “The Instagram community has evolved over the past five years from a place to share filtered photos to so much more — a global community of interests sharing more than 80 million photos and videos every day. Our updated look reflects how vibrant and diverse your storytelling has become.”
This new Instagram Icon showcases a whole new technology, and the company offers the users with a flatter design and with more vibrant colors. This colorful new icon is based on modern design, and brings many changes to the older icon. The company has no longer been using the older icon, and has said that the old fashioned camera no longer reflects the modern generation.
Not just the Instagram Icon, but the icons of Boomerang, Hyperlapse and Layout too, have been changed to match this new and modern color scheme. Instagram, with their new update, has also updated the user interface of their app, as they now offer the users with a whole new experience – an improved, smoother, flatter UI as well as new and updated colors for notifications and more.
The company is indeed progressing towards modern form of art, but the users have been left split over it. While those who appreciate the new age design have hailed Instagram, but those who would rather prefer the old camera were upset with it. The company concluded their blog saying – “Thank you for giving this community its life and colour”.
