In addition, the app confirmed that it will start showing vertical photos posted on the social network with a 16:9 aspect ratio and full screen, instead of the usual 4:5, “in one or two weeks.”

However, at the end of July, the Meta-owned social network stopped testing the redesign of its ‘app’, which included changes such as a full-screen ‘feed’ or the transition of all videos on the platform to the ‘ reels’ after receiving criticism from its users.
The CEO of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, confirmed in his personal profile and in an ‘Ask me anything’ session, where he answers questions from platform users, that he maintains his commitment to prioritizing full-screen content.
