Instagram is planning to move in the reverse-chronological feed! But, with a high demand from the users to bring back all of the features like the photo-sharing platform, etc. Now, Photo sharing platform is believed to be working on similar functionality, which is also in an Instagram term called “Latest Posts”
The latest Feature will enable users to catch up and have an instant first prioritized look on the latest content in their Instagram feeds.
This type of report was first reported by Jane Manchun Wong, who is well-known for reverse engineering popular apps, Here is what she depicted about notification to check out the latest posts will appear in a pop-up window over the main feed.
If you tap on the “See Posts” button, you will be directed to a separate feed section and unfortunately, it won’t be a reverse-chronological feed that users have been clamoring for.
She has also attached a screenshot about the “Latest Posts” feature, which is shown how the pop-up notification and feed will look like.

This sounds like the chronological feed people are asking for. Similar, but not the same 👀 pic.twitter.com/AUMwlZGtUr

Before that, Do keep this thing in mind that at present Latest Post feature is under its final development stage and is yet to roll out officially to all accounts!
Sources also say that Facebook ditched the reverse-chronological feed in the year of 2016, opting instead, for a software-generated feed based on the users and the content that a particular user has interacted with the most.
While the company has since tweaked the feed timeline somewhat to appease angered users, most people still hated the idea and called for the company to revert to the older format.
While some users will still not see any option to revert back to the old chronological timeline. The “Latest Posts” feature does give them an option to see the newest uploads in the feed in a timely manner.
