Instagram is set to roll out slightly redesigned 'Profile' interface

Every now and then we see some or the other app getting some design refresh. Google apps are receiving material redesign, Facebook Messenger is getting simplified, Play Store has some UI tweaks and now Instagram comes into the picture. Instagram, today, revealed its plans to test and roll out a brand new profile page. The interface hasn't been revamped entirely; there are some subtle changes.

Instagram announced in a blog post that the new interface for profile pages will roll out to a small set of users first for testing and then a global roll out will be carried out in the next few weeks.

The company wrote:
“Your profile is where you share who you are on Instagram, so starting today we’re testing ways you can better express yourself and more easily connect with the people you care about on your profile.”

If you haven't been able to make out the changes let me help you out. The profile picture now moves to the right, the name is now bold and moved to the top, and the description font has been tweaked a bit. Other than this, the categories now have names instead of the icons like 'Grid' is now a name instead of the matrix sort of icon it used to be before. The buttons have become flatter, the IGTV tab has been added to the profile, and the pages showing the details of followers and who you are following have gotten a UI refresh as well. As for the first look, this new design seems new and well structured. I like this UI. Do you? Tell me in the comments below.
