and its partner apps Layout, Boomerang, and Hyperlapse also got some of that too:

As for the interface in Instagram, the app creators have announced that it will now have a simpler camera and to help put “more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app”. They also shared their source of inspiration:

The Instagram community has evolved over the past five years from a place to share filtered photos to so much more — a global community of interests sharing more than 80 million photos and videos every day. Our updated look reflects how vibrant and diverse your storytelling has become. Thank you for giving this community its life and color. You make Instagram a place to discover the wonder in the world. Every photo and video — from the littlest things to the most epic — opens a window for people to broaden their experiences and connect in new ways.”

Not everyone thinks it’s so “Wow!”  though, just look at what someone thinks was the thought process for the whole change:
