Social Media giant Instagram launched a much awaited feature for its users

ISLAMABAD - Social Media giant Instagram launched a much awaited feature for its users.

Instagram has been internally testing a “Latest Posts” feature reports *TechCrunch* link. A pop-up over the main feed and takes users to the newest content from their circle.

The prototype was discovered by Jane Manchun Wong who generated the following screenshots from the code of Instagram’s Android app.

“Welcome Back! Get caught up on the posts from [names of people you follow] and 9 more” reads the pop-up that appears over the home screen. If users tap “See Posts” instead of “Not Now” they’re directed to a separate screen displaying recent posts.

Instagram later confirmed the legitimacy of the prototype with a spokesperson telling *TechCrunch* [and later tweeting] that “This early prototype is from a recent hackathon – it is not available to anyone publicly, and we have no plans to test or launch it at this time.”

Instagram has previously tried to appease users with a “You’re All Caught Up” insert that informed users they’d viewed all the posts of their network in the feed, if you’d scrolled past everything from the past two days. Latest Posts may also have the same effect.
