LOOK: Instagram Undergoes Makeover!

Instagram shocked everyone with its sudden makeover! The cute retro camera which served as the social media app's logo since its creation in 2010 has been replaced with a gradient of sunset colors (orange, yellow, pink, purple) along with a white outline of a camera!

Instagram posted a video about the updated icon - where else but on Instagram! Check it out!


Today we’re introducing a new look. You’ll see an updated icon and app design for Instagram. Inspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form. You’ll also see updated icons for our other creative apps: Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse. We’ve made improvements to how the Instagram app looks on the inside as well. The simpler design puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app. 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. Thank you for giving this community its life and color. You make Instagram a place to discover the wonder in the world. Every photo and video — from the littlest things to the most epic — opens a window for people to broaden their experiences and connect in new ways.
