Facebook today announced some big changes to Instagram. Instagram is getting two new tabs, Reels tab and Shop tab. The Reels tab will allow you to discover short, fun videos from creators all over the world and the Shop tab will allow you to connect with brands and creators and discover products you love.
Here’s why Instagram is making this change:
We don’t take these changes lightly – we haven’t updated Instagram’s home screen in a big way for quite a while. But how people create and enjoy culture has changed, and the biggest risk to Instagram is not that we change too fast, but that we don’t change and become irrelevant. We’re excited about the new design and believe it gives the app a much-needed refresh, while staying true to our core value of simplicity. We’ll continue listening to your feedback so we can keep improving Instagram for you.
