Instagram has reversed its latest update after it caused outrage among users.

People were left furious this afternoon after the social media giant changed the way you scroll.

Rather than scrolling up and down, users had to scroll from side to side.

In a matter of hours the update was reversed with the head of Instagram Adam Mosseri saying the update was only a test that went out to more people than intended.

Like many major updates to apps, this one faced quick backlash from users, even if it only lasted briefly.

On Twitter, #instagramupdate was the number one trending hashtag in the U.S.
