People aren't Loving Instagram's Bright New App Icon
When a logo sits on millions of users' home screens,
you can bet that not even the slightest change will go unnoticed.
Instagram appears to have rolled out a slightly updated icon design
and it seems some users are, just like The Weeknd, blinded by the lights.
It looks like the Meta-owned app's new icon is essentially
a brighter version of the previous design,
with the vibrancy of the gradient behind the logo turned up a notch (or three).
But some users – and some smartphones – aren't handling the change well.
"I'm going to have to reduce my screen brightness for that,"
one Twitter user complains, while another adds,
"New Instagram icon is way over-saturated. Gross."
