Instagram working on new UI for user profiles

Instagram is one of the world’s most preferred social media platforms. In fact, it has seen a lot of users migrate from Facebook to just using Instagram. The photo-sharing service has also expanded its business module, providing its users with extra features to better sell their products/services. Now, it seems like the company is working on a new UI for user profiles.

Instagram new UI

As announced by Instagram in an official blog post, the company is working on a new design for your profile on the app. The idea is to ensure that the app’s profile becomes “easier and cleaner to use”. The company also shared some screenshots of the UI being tested.

As shown above, Instagram is rearranging features found at the top of your profile including icons, buttons, and the way you move between tabs. However, Instagram has reassured that photos and videos shared on your grid won’t change. 

Currently in testing

Instagram has said that the team is working on these changes. They will be testing them in phases and different combinations with the community over the next several weeks. What’s more is that the above screenshots will not essentially be the final product, and could come in a slightly modified form.
