Instagram is now the most popular photo-sharing platform in the world. Facebook-owned service has nearly one billion active users worldwide. Instagram will soon join Facebook’s one billion club. The company has been adding new features to Instagram to improve the user interface.
Last year, Instagram officially announced Stories, an exciting feature that allows you to share all the moments of your day. In other words, your posts will be available as a story that allows your followers to catch up with the latest happenings.
Instagram Stories quickly gained its popularity worldwide. The feature hit 300 million active users in the first three months. In reality, Stories feature is not something new out there as it has been part of Snapchat for years. However, Snapchat Stories is falling behind Instagram’s counterpart on the market.
Facebook-owned service today confirmed that it has begun rolling out “You’re All Caught Up”, a handy feature that lets you know if you have already seen all the posts from the people you are following in Instagram. In reality, Instagram was previously rumored to launch a new feature that allows you to find out if you have seen all the posts you follow.
However, the feature was once available for testing purposes and it remained unclear when it would hit the public. This is a great addition to Instagram as it lets users know if they have seen all the posts, eliminating the need to scroll around your feeds.
For some background, Instagram was first introduced back in 2010 for iOS devices. The service had one million registrations after two months of availability. In 2012, Facebook officially acquired Instagram for one billion dollars, making it one of the biggest acquisitions in the industry.
Instagram is getting better every year, thanks to the company’s endless effort to improve it. Instagram has been focusing on Stories feature since the day one in an attempt to take on other rivals on the market.
According to Instagram, the “You’re All Caught Up” feature is rolling out to users worldwide. Both iOS and Android versions will get the update. It remains unclear if the update will come with bug fixes or not.
