Instagram is well-known to introduce exciting new features regularly to keep the app up to date. Just last week, Instagram rolled out an update that brings video chat, topic channels and new camera filters for enhanced user experience. At this time, the Facebook-owned photo sharing platform has introduced yet another new feature namely, “You’re All Caught Up”. This feature shows up when you’re caught up with all posts from the last two days and lets you know that you’re up to date. The update will be available on both Android and iOS platforms for a seamless user experience.

Instagram said in a blog post, “We’ve heard that it can be difficult to keep track of your seen posts. With this message, you’ll have a better understanding of your feed and know you haven’t missed recent photos or videos.”

Instagram has to deal with a lot of criticism when it decided to retire the chronological feed back in 2016. The company adopted algorithm-based timeline to show users the content most relevant to them. Even after getting a lot of complaints from the users, the company is not in a mood to consider the traditional chronological option.

With the algorithm-based timeline, Instagram take notice of your past actions and behaviors. As a result, the posts that you like and comment on a regular basis will be the first ones to appear at the top of your feed. Additionally, the most recent posts will be prioritized over older ones. If you’re in a close relationship with a person and interacted a lot in the form of comments on their posts and tagged together in photos, you’re most likely to see their posts in the top spot compared to others.
