Instagram rolls back its new horizontal scroll interface

The new user interface, which was supposed to be tested with a small number of users, sparked outrage among users who immediately panned this new design.Instagram tried out a new user interface which would require horizontally tapping to view the posts, instead of the usual scrolling down method. User had to tap to the right to see more pictures from their friends and the vertical feed, which has defined Instagram would disappear. But as users pointed out that tapping the picture in the middle would ensure that the image got liked, even if that’s not what the user wanted to do.
Instagram appears to have rolled back this new design. Instagram’s head Adam Mosseri took to Twitter to explain that this was a very small test, but it went ‘broader’ than the company had anticipated. Mosseri added that the ‘horizontal design’ interface has been rolled back, and users should restart their app, if they were still seeing the new design.
