Instagram appears to have changed how users scroll through the application and people have a lot to say about it.
In an update that seems to have begun rolling out globally on Thursday, the social media app now allows users to tap side-to-side rather than scrolling through their feeds vertically.
“Introducing a new way to move through posts,” reads the update. “Tap through posts, just like you tap through stories.”
As mentioned in the update’s messaging, Instagram’s feed now resembles its Stories feature, giving users the ability to quickly go through each post. The site began testing the feature in October, telling TechCrunch that it was “testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and bring you closer to the people and things you love.”
The update has not been confirmed as a test or an official rollout.
But it doesn’t seem that people are feeling like the app was, uh, improved:
I am NOT liking this @instagram update where you tap to go through posts. I really like scrolling!! Give me the scroll back!! 😡

Minutes after the update went through on many phones, some noted that their app reverted back to infinite scroll and the update appeared to have been removed.
Instagram has not responded to HuffPost’s request for comment on the update.
