VK has prepared a major update of the VKontakte mobile application. The update will take place in several stages and will be available to all users within a few months.

The social network news feed is getting a global redesign with a focus on vibrant media formats and users' need for high-speed information. The focus is on aesthetic presentation and deep engagement with the content.

  • VK said that the new content design was based on the simplification of interface elements and the unification of formats. Now the layout of the tape will look good on any device – thanks to three options for aspect ratio: 1:1, 3:4 and 4:3.
  • In addition, short posts will now be fully displayed in the feed, and longer posts will be opened fully on click.
  • Also, VKontakte will show the photo of the author of the original post in the community if one of the users uses it repost. According to the developers, this will shift the focus of the social network to copyright content.
  • And finally – in the social network it will be possible to put likes with a double tap on any part of the post. At the same time, when scrolling the feed under the posts, it will not be displayed which of the friends reacted to this or that publication.

In the future, VK plans to continue major app update. The updates will affect the “Services” section, as well as the appearance of the profile and communities.

The current update will be available to some users on August 9th. Later it will be distributed on a larger scale.
