Instagram released a new logo and interface design on Wednesday, replacing the old Polaroid-like camera image with a sleek rainbow gradient.

The new layout also "puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app," said the company in a statement.

"Our updated look reflects how vibrant and diverse your storytelling has become," it added.

But that message was lost among some people who woke up to the new logo with dazed reactions.
