Instagram rolling back changes after Kardashians slammed the app for being like TikTok
Meta is ending a trial of the angry Instagram app for many, including celebrity sisters Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian.
Instagram boss Adam Mosseri announced on Thursday in the Platformer Newsletter
that he will reset the recently released version of Instagram.
This allowed the user to display the video
, which is mainly recommended by the algorithm, on the home screen.
Many Instagram users, including sister Kardashian, complained about the Instagram trial and complained that
the app publicly copied rival TikTok and moved away from its photo-sharing roots.
Mosseri released a short video on Tuesday in response to critics.
Photos continue to play an important role for Instagram,
but video is preferred because it changes user habits.
In other words, Instagram will continue to push videos as people share and love them more and more on the app
