Wait—What's the Deal With the Stylish New Instagram?

Aemilia Madden

From now on, double tapping is going to look very different. Photo-sharing app Instagram rolled out some major design changes today, starting with one very noticeable shake-up: a new icon. Gone is the old-school camera, replaced with a colourful, modern icon. Instagram stated that with 80 million (yes, really) photos and videos uploaded every day, the redesign "puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app."

Inside the application, the sleek redesign lets your photos shine by swapping the classic blue accent colour for simple white and grey. Now, your outfit will always pop. Editing your photos now feels streamlined and simple too. So up that brightness worry-free!  Watch a video explaining the redesign below, then scroll for a look at a few of our latest Instagram shots!
