Insty, is that you?

Remember how we were stoked Insty was testing out a new blogger-eque, monochrome design?

Well it’s official. Instagram has just announced the look is going to be rolled out across Android and iOS. 

According to the company's blog, the minimal design of Instagram version 8.0 “puts the focus on your posts and keeps your features in the same place.”  

But that’s not even the biggest news here. The Instagram logo has also had a complete overhaul.

The company has released two videos, explaining the updates. And considering all the work it took to get the new logo, we’re a little surprised by how decidedly simple it is.

See for yourself:
