Wondering how to switch Instagram to chronological order? We've got you covered. In 2016, Instagram removed the option while switching to the engagement-based feed. Since 2016, Instagram hasn’t allowed users to view their feed in chronological order but in March 2022, Instagram reintroduced the feature that lets you set the Instagram feed in chronological order in two new ways.

Along with the ability to follow and favourite various posts, Instagram lets you set the feed as per your likes where in the Following section you’ll get to see the most recent posts from the accounts you follow in chronological order while the Favorites will show you posts from the accounts you have added to your favourite list.

Instagram mixes your feed with random posts from your accounts that you don’t follow on Instagram along with your following lists, resulting in you being unable to see the latest updates from your following accounts. Instagram’s ability allows you to see the Instagram feed in chronological order making it a lot easier for you to get the latest updates from the accounts you follow. With just two simple clicks you can also switch your Instagram feed to a chronological order.
