A couple of months ago back in April, it was discovered that Instagram was testing out a new redesigned Explore tab. Instagram does test out new features every now and then so it wasn’t all that surprising to hear about it, plus it was also confirmed back at Facebook’s F8 conference last month.


For those who use the Explore tab frequently, you might be interested to learn that the new redesigned Explore tab is rolling out to users as we speak. If you don’t see it yet, not to worry as it should eventually make its way to you, but for those who have already received it, you might actually not even notice it.

This is because on the surface the redesigned tab doesn’t look too different from its previous incarnation. The tiled design is still very much present, but one of the main differences would be the topic channels at the top. This allows users to browse posts on Instagrams that have been sorted out by category, versus the current layout which seems to be a mash of posts Instagram thinks you like, and also posts based on people you follow. It’s not a particularly huge change but it could help make discovering new content easier and neater.
