In 2016, Instagram started cleaning up users' feeds based on what the algorithm plotting users would want. Unfortunately, unlike platforms like Twitter that allow users to switch between algorithmic and timed feeds, Instagram has not given them the freedom to be able to return to timed feeds. But Instagram is obviously working on a new feature that will give users some relief.
Jane Manchun Wong, a celebrity when it comes to digging in-app features, recently tweeted about a new feature that will allow Instagram users to see the latest posts missing when they were off Instagram.
Instagram is working on the "Latest Post" feed to take in feed feedThis sounds like the chronological feed people are asking for. Similar, but not the same 👀 pic.twitter.com/AUMwlZGtUr

Every time you log in, Instagram will show you the "Latest Posts" you've missed from the people you follow. Although not exactly a chronological food, it serves part of the purpose of a chronological food. But given the hullabaloo, Instagram users have made about timing, Instagram should just let users switch to one already!
Instagram is currently showing a "You're all trapped" message when you've seen all the posts you've uploaded in the last 48 hours in your timeline. But over again, the positions presented are not necessarily in chronological order.

At this time, it is not clear whether Instagram will bring this feature to all-purpose users or not. If it plans to bring it to all users, there is no information on when the deployment will take place.
