Instagram just introduced a new look and updated its app icon. Its other apps, Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse also have new icons!

Describing it as "a simpler design", Instagram states that it wants to put more focus on photos and videos. You would have noticed that the interface is less colorful and this design choice is deliberate.

"While the logo is a colorful doorway into the Instagram app, once inside the app, we believe the color should come directly from the community's photos and videos," said Spalter. "We stripped the color and noise from surfaces where people's content should take center stage, and boosted color on other surfaces like sign up flows and home screens." - Ian Spalter, Instagram's head of design.

You can update Instagram to experience the new interface right now!
