Instagram: Change News Feed Layout With Instagram ++
The Home section of the photo app Instagram shows your news feed, where you can browse through the photos of your friends. You would usually scroll through the images because they are lined up in one row. We want to present you a trick that allows you to change the layout of the news feed. In addition, you will be able to switch between the layouts easily!
Get a new Instagram layout with Instagram ++
Before you can change the design of your Instagram Home feed, you have to download the special Instagram version called Instagram ++. Read our tutorial on how to get more Instagram features to learn how to get the app and how to install it. Although Instagram ++ looks like the conventional Instagram app and runs with your Instagram account, you have more options with Instagram ++ that you cannot use with the normal app – such as changing the Instagram layout of your news feed.
Once you have installed Instagram ++ successfully and signed in, you will notice that the “Home menu” is already different. You will now see the photos of your friends or pages that you follow in a grid of three rows (see “after” image) instead of one row (see “before”).

Change Instagram layout
If you are happy with Instagram ++ and the various special features, but you don’t like the news feed grid, you can switch to the standard layout easily. To display the standard layout of the normal Instagram app, you just need to tap “Instagram” on top and it will look like the normal Instagram app.
You will notice that the little circle next to the logo turns black for the standard layout. This way you don’t have to go without the additional features of Instagram ++ but you have the usual layout for the news feed. You can also switch between the two layouts as you wish to browse the news feed better. All you need to do is tapping the “Instagram” logo on top.
