Instagram started replacing the Activity Tab with the Shopping Tab in early July as part of a worldwide test. Now, the Facebook-owned social network has announced some more home screen tests.
Three potential home screen layouts for Instagram
Users of Instagram will soon receive access to one of three home screen layouts. All of them focus heavily on the Shopping Tab and introduce an all-new Reels Tab to better compete with TikTok.
- Option 1: This Instagram version replaces the Explore Tab with the Reels Tab and moves the former to the top of the screen, right next to the Direct Message icon and Activity Tab.
