Instagram for Android has recently got a new update. After the update (V188.8.131.52.83), the app will let you know when you are caught up with all the posts from the last two days whenever you are scrolling your timeline. When you are totally up to date, the app will show you a notification which would read “You’re all caught up”.
As per the Instagram’s official blog, this new feature will help you stay updated.
Today, you’ll start noticing a “You’re All Caught Up” message when you’ve seen every post from the last two days. 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 shifted to a non-chronological algorithm for its posts timeline a little while ago in order to ensure maximum user engagement. But, the feature was not taken well by a lot of users who want their posts to be shown in a chronological order.
Truth be told, this new feature is not likely to solve any purpose as we still won’t be able to make use of a chronology-based timeline. Still, if you want to check the feature out, Instagram has started rolling it out to both iOS as well as Android. Instagram is rolling out a lot of new features lately. Recently, a new update was pushed post which you can ask a question of your own choice in someone’s Story.
Till now, you could interact with someone’s stories in the form of a poll or a smiley slider which was up to the discretion of the poster. You could message the Story owner personally, but that would require another extra step. Now, you can directly fire the Story with a question of your choosing.
The questions are open-ended and there is no word limit on them. You can ask as long a question as you want. The image above, for instance, shows an option to roast a poster’s Story.
