Instagram is trying out an option that shows latest posts first

After The switched from a chronological feed to an algorithm-driven one back in 2016, instagram hasn’t been quite the same since, users might soon get a new way to see the most recent posts first as suggested in recent findings on the coding of the App .

The Option was found by Jane Manchun Wong which currently cant be seen at the moment by regular users, according to the findings A splash screen appears, offering to help you “get caught up” on new posts from particular people.

This doesn’t seem to be a full-on return to the chronological feed, but it might be enough to satisfy some of those who have been clamouring to see recent activity on Instagram ahead of what the app thinks are the best posts of the day.

For the Past couple of years Instagram has actually tweaked its algorithms so that timely photos and videos have a better chance of appearing at the top of the feed, and there have been previous tests of a ‘new posts’ feature too. its currently not clear when or if this ‘latest posts’ feature is ever going to see the light of day officially, but there’s no doubt it’s something that Instagram developers are thinking about and actively testing.

Alexandru Voica in a post made on Twitter Said “It is not available to anyone publicly, and we have no plans to test or launch it at this time,” so its a bit obvious that we won’t be getting this option in Instagram for a while yet, at least.

The most recent feature to get added to the social networking app is a tool for showing the users you interact with least. If you want to cut down on the number of accounts you’re following, then this is a good place to start.
