Instagram ‘Latest Posts’ feature may be coming soon
In consequence, on March 22, 2018, Instagram announced an update to improve its feed and give more control to users over it. In Instagram’s announcement, they stated that they have taken into consideration the users’ feedback regarding the desire for a feature in which newer posts are more likely to appear first in feed.
However, this did not bring back the chronological feed that people have been asking for ever since the change. Now, according to reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong’s post on Twitter, Instagram is working on a “Latest posts” feature. The option to update your feed with posts you’ve missed will appear as a pop-up window, which you can choose to ignore if you wish. Wong states that it looks similar to the chronological feed, but it isn’t quite the same. Unfortunately, we don’t have information about the feature’s potential release date.
