Instagram celebrates its 10 years
It is a surprise that is accessed from the configuration menu . When this option is activated, 12 different icon designs can be accessed. It is enough to choose the one that we like the most and then see that an access will be created with the selected aesthetic.
How to change the Instagram icon – #Tecno
How to change the icon
The first step consists of clicking on the three horizontal stripes that appear in the upper right margin to access a menu within which the Configuration option appears at the bottom.
You have to click on Settings
Once inside Settings, you have to move your finger down, dragging the screen. By doing so you will see that at the top a series of emojis and other graphics.
Scroll the screen down until a series of icons appear
Once these graphics are seen, the screen is released and a selection of 12 different designs of the Instagram icon will be seen. Just select one of them and choose the option “add”.
There are 12 different designs to choose from.
Doing so will create a shortcut on the mobile home screen with this new design. It should be noted that when you start the application you will continue to see the same icon as always. In other words, the icon's aesthetic change is only displayed in the shortcut on the screen.
In case you want to change the icon to choose another option or to return to the classic version, you will simply have to repeat the previous steps.
