Instagram announces a new easier interface

In a post on its press site today, Instagram announced a redesigned profile interface. The company touts that the new design makes it easier to “connect with the people you care about on your profile” and “express yourself.”

The redesigned profile interface not only applies to your view of your own profile, but also to that of other users on Instagram. The new interface is tabbed, meaning there are tabs for “Grid,” “Posts,” “Shop,” “IGTV,” and “Tagged.”

Along the top of the new interface, bios, follower counts, and other details now wrap around the profile picture, as seen in the above screenshot.

The redesigned profile interface will rollout to users “over the next several weeks,” but Instagram notes that changes will be tested and rolled out in “phases and different combinations.” This means you might see a gradual change to the profile interface on your device. The company also says that the interface may evolve and change throughout the rollout.

Instagram hasn’t settled on a final redesign. It is still testing the layout and will keep shifting things around as it sees fit. Some users are already seeing the new layout taking effect on their end.
