While the change appears to currently be in the testing phases, it's believed it will be rolling out to all users in the near future.

"It’s been over a year that I’ve been formatting my Instagram in a multiple of three posts. I play with the overall look of my profile," said user Palash Prabhaker while speaking to The Ringer. "I regard my Instagram as a digital representation of me, I use my account as my digital portfolio. Messing with the grid view would mean that I will have to curate my Instagram again from the start with a constant fear of Instagram changing the layout again."

How do you feel about the change? Let us know in the comments.
