Instagram just announced that they’re introducing several new features, including one that’s called “You’re all caught up.” This feature will pop up as a notification and will let you know when you’ve seen all of the new posts your friends have uploaded in the past 48 hours.

This might seem like a dumb idea, but it’s actually a really good one if you think about it. It pops up as a message, allowing you to avoid spending hours scrolling pointlessly, without realizing that you’ve been watching the same set of pictures for an hour. No one needs that.

The images that appear below the “You’re all caught up” message will be the ones that are over two days old.

But it’s going to take a while before you see the new update.  According to Bustle this is due to the fact that Instagram rolls out these updates slowly in order to minimize app overload and to try to smooth over any technical difficulties. If it’s been a couple of days and your Instagram hasn’t automatically uploaded, you can try doing these four things:

Check For Updates

If your Instagram doesn’t automatically update, you can check the App Store and run the update manually, speeding up the process. Tap on the “Updates” tab and update all of the apps that show up there, ensuring that everything is running smoothly.

Log Into Wifi

Using wi-fi is an effective way of hurrying updates, since they can be delayed when you’re using your cellular service.

Log In And Out

If the app isn’t loading properly, it helps to log out of your account and to log back in again. Head over to your “Settings” and scroll all the way to the bottom until you reach “Log out of account.”

Delete And Reinstall

If you’ve exhausted all other options, you can always delete the app and reinstall it. This will allow for a full reboot of the app, getting rid of the bugs that might have affected it.
