How to Change the Instagram App Icon [Android & iPhone]



How to Change Instagram Icon

Instagram is the most used social media application that has more than 1.4 billion active users. During its launch in 2020, the Instagram logo looked like a Polaroid camera. Later in 2016, the logo was entirely changed except for the camera. Currently, the logo of Instagram features a white camera with a gradient background. Some users like the old Polaroid camera icon and wish to change it. As Instagram doesn’t have the option to change the app icon, you can change it on Android or iOS devices with the help of a third-party application.
