Instagram’s New Look – Yay Or Nay?

Those of you who know me well know that I spend a LOT of time on Instagram. [For those of you who don’t know, I have two Instagram accounts, one is my personal Ig account (authorheenarathore)Β and the other one is my book blog’s Bookstagram (thereadingbud)]

So yesterday afternoon when I was working on a presentation on my Mac, I received an email from Instagram saying that they’ve changed their look in the new update. Before I even finished reading the entire mail, I jumped up from the bed, grabbed my phone and updated the app immediately. I didn’t even waste a single second as I was really fed up with the old blue theme (which always reminded me of a hospital I visited in my childhood. *shudders*)

As soon as the new update was installed and I opened the updated Ig app, I was spellbound by what I saw in front of my eyes — *drumrolls* — CLEAR WHITE AND BLACK THEME!!!

I was on the 7th sky seeing the new clean design. It might be nothing to a person who hardly checks their Ig, but for someone like me who is on Ig 24/7, it means a LOT!!!!

Thankfully before updating the app I happened to take a screenshot of the old Ig. This is how the old Ig looked like (before yesterday):


And this is how it looks now:

I love the new sharp and crispy black and white color scheme and the pink color that they’ve used for notifications and stuff is simply adorable (see the picture below.)
I love this new update and I really feel that now it looks more stylish and beautiful.

I’ve heard that a lot of people hate the new look and that they’d do anything to go back to the old one. Well, I disagree and I’ll be sticking to this new update no matter what.

What about you? Do you like the new update? Or do you prefer the old Ig and want to go back to the old blue theme? Go ahead and spell out your thoughts. I’d love to know what you think πŸ™‚

Have a great day!

Ciao ❀
