Instagram new Home Screen layouts
Instagram is testing new layouts for its home screen that bring special sections for Shopping and Reels. Instagram has previously tested a similar layout in India, Brazil, France, and Germany.
All three layouts are slightly different. In one of them, Reels replaces the “Browse” tab, and “Shopping” replaces the “Activity” section (and “Overview” and “Activity” are moved to the upper right corner of the application, next to the mailbox).
In the third version, Instagram puts all six shortcuts – “Home”, “Browse”, “Reels”, “Store”, “Activity” and “Profile” – on the bottom bar, and the shortcut to create a new post is moved to the top right corner.
