After that, users can choose to change the Instagram icon according to the available icon choices. However, this secret feature does not appear to be accessible to all users.

However, users who have not been able to access this hidden feature need not be discouraged. The reason is, Instagram seems to be rolling out this feature gradually. As compiled from The Verge, this hidden feature is alleged to be accessible during October 2020.
