To switch to Instagram’s chronological feed, tap on the app logo and select “Following.” You can also select “Favorites” to view posts from accounts you’ve added to your Favorites list.
Do you want to see the most recent posts from the accounts you follow on Instagram? If so, change your feed order to chronological and you’re good to go. Here’s how to do it on your iPhone or Android phone.
How the Instagram chronological feed works
By default, Instagram shows you posts it thinks you’ll like, even if that means putting an old post at the top of your feed and keeping a recent one at the bottom. It does this by learning your preferences from your use of its app and other sources.
However, if you want the platform to show you the most recent posts at the top, you can do so by switching to the chronological news order.
This is an official Instagram feature that allows you to view the posts of people you follow in a time-based order.

View Instagram feed in chronological order on iPhone and Android
To view posts in a time-based order, launch the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android phone.
When the app launches, in the top left corner, tap on the Instagram logo.
A menu will open with two options:
- Following: To view posts from accounts you follow on Instagram in chronological order, choose this option.
- Favorites: To view posts from accounts you’ve added to your “Favorites” list, tap this option.
Note: If you don’t find the above two options after tapping on the Instagram logo, please refresh the app on your iPhone or Android.
On the page that opens, you will find the most recent post at the top.
Note: Instagram will not save your selection as default. You will need to switch to chronological order every time you open your app.
