Instagram "back to normal" after bug triggers temporary change to feed

Instagram app

Instagram has apologised for an update that changed the app's vertical feed to a horizontal one.

But while Instagram called the redesigned feed as a bug and rolled back the design change, it was clear that users were not happy about the change.

Instagram also said that the bug has been fixed and Instagram is back to the usual up and downwards scrolling.

Instagram has some explaining to do. In fact, most Instagram users took to other social media platforms to talk about how much they hated the updated look.

Instagram has apologised after a test feature was accidentally rolled out to millions of people using its app. Many users are still upset about losing the chronological feed for photos, which was replaced by an algorithm-controlled feed in 2016. "We apologize for any confusion", the company said, reported the publication. "Introducing a new way to move through posts", a pop-up message introducing the new feature reads.

With frequent reports of waning XR sales in specific regions , it looks like Apple's marketing machine is kicking into high gear. The investment will create up to 25,000 jobs in the country and reduce Foxconn's (and Apple's ) manufacturing presence in China.

But it is true that the future of Facebook and Instagram depends on Stories, not on the traditional News Feed. Instead of scrolling, the user would have to tap to advance and a scrolling bar at the top will show how far user has progressed. Users then need to find the version of the app they do want on their device, they can likely find it on APK Mirror and install it from there.

Adam Mosseri, who heads Instagram for Facebook, says the update was made "by accident".

If you're still seeing the update, Mosseri suggests closing out and launching the app again.

Some people logged into Instagram Thursday to an unwelcome surprise: Their vertical scrolling through images had disappeared. Tapping right will lead users to the next post whereas tapping left will bring users back to the previous post, and tapping in the middle will do the same, which is liking the post.
