Instagram is working on a new feature that will allow you to edit your profile grid

Instagram is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to rearrange posts in their profile grid. The feature is currently in development, but prolific app reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi managed to enable it ahead of its rollout to give us a glimpse of what the feature would look like upon release.

In a recent tweet, Paluzzi shared two screenshots of the new feature. The first screenshot shows the Profile Information section of the Edit Profile page with a new Edit Grid setting. Tapping it will open a new window with your profile grid, as shown in the second screenshot. This page allows users to drag and drop posts to reorder them and change the layout of their profile grid. Tapping the Done button in the top right corner of the page will save the edited grid layout.

At this time, Instagram has not shared any details about this feature. But we expect the company to reveal more information when the feature is ready for primetime. It’s worth noting that since the feature is in early development, it could be a while before it rolls out to beta testers.

Along with the new profile grid editing feature, Instagram is also working on bringing back the chronological feed. The company recently confirmed that it will reintroduce the chronological feed sometime this year, about six years after it was replaced by the current algorithmically sorted feed.
