Instagram is on Its Way to Test a Flatter, Black and White Design

Instagram is on Its Way to Test a Flatter, Black and White Design

With more than 300 million monthly active users, Instagram has seized its place among the top social channels in quite a short span of time. Apart from being an image-friendly app that allows a user to upload unlimited pictures, this social app has become the center of attraction for hundreds of businesses from all over the world.

But, what’s more interesting is the news that Instagram is about to test a little bit of changes in its design.

After having a look at this new screenshot, changes can be identified very easily. It shows that Instagram is moving slightly away from its current blue-and-orange interface and replacing it with a flat black and white design.

As you can see in the screenshot, the camera icon has been changed from square to circle, so that it can look exactly like a real camera. Moreover, the notification feed is getting highlighted by a heart.

The overall design is giving an extraordinarily decent look, but it’s still not confirmed that whether the Instagram officials will rollout all the changes or not. However, we are pretty sure that the new design will bring more maturity and stability to the interface.

Beverly Hills to Introduce Autonomous Cars for Public Transportation

Beverly Hills to Introduce Autonomous Cars for Public Transportation

In next couple of years, citizens of Beverly Hills will no longer be traveling by traditional buses and cars for sure.

It seems that the officials of Beverly Hills care for their citizens. And, because of this reason they have passed a resolution to introduce driverless cars for the convenience of their people.

It is surely going to be an incredible initiative which will allow a person to book a driverless car from smartphone, instead of standing on a bus stop.

“This is a game-changer for Beverly Hills and, we hope, for the region,” said Mirisch in a press release. “Beverly Hills is the perfect community to take the lead to make this technology a reality. It is now both feasible and safe for autonomous cars to be on the road.”

In order to make this plan a big reality, instead of going into contract with automobile giants like Mercedes or Audi, Beverly Hills is planning to collaborate with Google and Tesla.

The city which is popularly known as a home to many Hollywood celebrities will soon become the center of attraction because of its autonomous cars.

What is your take on it? How do you see this decision? We would love to hear from you…
