Instagram Accidentally Launches A New Update and Surprise All Users

A big mistake according to the social network.

Many Instagram users were speechless when their application saw its ergonomics change dramatically ... for just a few minutes.

The popular photo-sharing site, Instagram, has accidentally changed how scrolling publications work on their mobile app, and some people are extremely upset.

On Thursday, December 27, Instagram was testing a new horizontal system for scrolling images, instead of the usual verticality on the home screen of the application. Instead of scrolling up and down to see the new posts, users scroll from right to left or can press the right side of the screen to move to the next picture, as if they were using Instagram the same as a book.

This meant that it was no longer possible to quickly scroll through new publications as each had to be scanned or touched to move to the next one. This change affected only the main page and the user profiles worked the same way as before.
While some Instagram users enjoyed the new update, others were extremely unhappy with the change, prompting Instagram to return to the old version, with some even stating that the update would kill the new version application.

Users were shocked by this update, but the move to the horizontal is expected for some time, this Instagram update was initially deployed to a small number of users in October.
The new system was put online Thursday morning, but it was not planned for everyone. The head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, tweeted that this "was supposed to be a very small test but they went further than expected". Mosseri confirmed that the update should be erased for everyone and that it was enough to restart your application if you saw it again.
Sorry, it was supposed to be a very small test, but we went further than expected.
Given the very negative feedback received from the update, Instagram might think twice before publishing this new feature. Earlier in 2018, Snapchat had released an incredibly unpopular update that revamped its application. The reaction to this change was so bad that Snap, the company that owns Snapchat, saw its price drop by $ 1.3 billion.
