This morning Instagram began rolling out a new update that vastly changed the main feed of the app. Instead of scrolling up and down to view content, it forced users to tap left or right, utilizing a horizontal, Stories-like approach. Instagram initially tested the design in October, exclusively on the Explore page.

With the update, which has since been taken down, new posts took up the entire screen, as did advertisements, and the only way to maneuver through them was, again, tapping left or right, as opposed to the traditional vertical scrolling. The old design was still available through Instagram.com, however, allowing you to scroll up and down, in addition to the Explore page on the app.

Evidently the update was only intended to be tested in a small scale, instead of coming to a large portion of users. To revert back to the previous version of Instagram, simply restart the app.

Regardless, with such a considerable change, many users have taken to Twitter to express their disapproval of the Instagram update, as well as appreciation for the quick turnaround. After getting a look at some of the responses below, hit the comments with your thoughts on the horizontal design.
