How to change Instagram’s icon in iOS and Android
Step 1. Make sure you’ve updated your Instagram app to the latest version
Step 2. Tap on your profile icon in the lower-right corner and click on the triple-line menu in the upper-right corner
Step 3. Choose settings and start scrolling up. Yes, up.
Step 4. You start to see a little line of emoji begin forming.
Step 5. You’ll warp into an Easter egg-like menu of new app icons. Pick your favorite.
Step 6. The exact process is applicable for Android and iOS.
Android users should note that your icon won’t look quite as pretty as what iOS users get, since it’ll also have the main Instagram icon attached to it, too. Android’s implementation of this icon change looks less appealing, but that’s just the way it is but there must be a way to change it.
Enjoy using Instagram with a new icon every time you get bored of the old one.
