Instagram is experimenting with a radical black-and-white redesign

Instagram is experimenting with a monochrome colour scheme, The Verge reports.

The Facebook-owned photo-sharing app is showing a small portion of users a black-and-white app — moving away from its traditional navy blue design.

It’s a pretty slick, simple interface, but there’s no word on when all users will get it — if ever. A spokesperson said that it’s a “design test,” and that the company “often test[s] new experiences with a small percentage of the global community.”

So if the feedback isn’t positive enough, expect to stick with the default blue with some time to come.

Here are a few photos of the redesign people are sharing on Twitter:
