How to Hide Recommended Posts in Instagram Feed on iPhone or Android

No longer want to recommend posts in your feed or you find them useless? You get the option to temporarily hide recommended Instagram posts in a feed on your iPhone and Android. Head over to know how it works:

Instagram now recommends posts in your feed based on the posts liked by the accounts you follow. For instance, if your friends like any posts, they will appear in your feed. Don’t want that unsolicited stuff? Well, you can temporarily hide recommended Instagram posts in the feed on your iPhone and Android.

Previously, Instagram used to recommend posts in Explore tab. Such posts are represented by a label at the top; apparently marking them as recommended. They work very much like sponsored posts and appear in a row instead of just one.
