How to change the Instagram icon
Instagram inspires young people to do things for their users during their decade: it is possible to change the app icon on Instagram. Which means, instead of using the current icon, you have it twelve icons to choose from which you can use on your home screen instead.

- Go Settings.
- Next down until you see a list of birthday-themed emoji.
- Continue until the screen changes.
- You now see a list of different Instagram icons. Choose icon your favourite.
- The new icon will automatically be added to your phone Android and iPhone homescreen.
Perhaps the most curious thing about it is the way it works, as it is almost hidden. First, you must open your profile (by tapping your profile picture in the bar below) and then tap the menu button ☰. Finally, enter Setting.
Now for the fun part. If you already have this new thing that works on Instagram, you should slide down until some emoji appear on top. When everything is displayed, the confetti is displayed on the screen and switches to the app icon settings.
Now comes the easy (or difficult, if not the least) part: select which icon you want to post on Instagram. There are currently twelve icons, including the old icons – some of which have never seen light – a variety of current icons in different colors. Tap the icon to add a shortcut to the home screen
Keep in mind that this option adds the icon of your choice to the home screen and, when unlocked, Instagram will start, but The standard icon will still be displayed in the app cabinet
