As a reminder to everyone, the feed sorting and filtering already has a lot of options can always be adjusted from the top corner of the feed. After this latest update your latest selection is also kept even after you close your app so you can always enjoy your preferred feed. Some alternatives you can already use:
- Sort by: Latest + Filter by: My follows = Latest from your Lens+Phaver followed users
- Sort by: Most mirrored + Filter by: Lens posts = Hottest posts across all Lens apps today
- Sort by: Recommended + Filter by: None = The alpha version of the Phaver algo, where we are updating the logic frequently to offer more relevant posts based on who you follow, what you subscribe to and the quality of the profile and post. Feedback is welcome and we are still working hard on fine tuning this.
Important news! Phaver just made a big change by migrating to use the Lens API instead of our own solution for posting on Lens. This will mean all Lens users will need to sign into Lens again inside Phaver to continue posting or commenting on Lens. This only has to be done once and after that you can also post seamlessly from any Lens platform without having to assign a dispatcher each time. This should also improve the stability and success rate of Lens posting and prepare us for a lot of growth in the future. What do I need to do? Close and reopen the app to apply latest updates. If you don’t have Lens connected this will not change anything for you. If you have connected a Lens profile and try to make a post after today’s migration it will ask you to assign a new dispatcher, just follow the instructions and sign with the same wallet you used to connect Lens. You can also complete the process by clicking on your Lens username in your profile. Please note that connect.phaver.com has not yet been updated for the new Lens API flow so you can only assign the new dispatcher inside the Phaver app. The browser flow will be updated next week. If you face any errors in the process please try again after a while and if the issue continues, report it in the #lens-support channel on Phaver Discord. What does this actually mean? As Phaver was the first mobile app to be released on Lens, we had to build a lot of custom solutions to allow everyone to post without having to sign each message with your wallet. Now Lens offers support for this on their side and also allows all apps to work with the same dispatcher to minimize need for signing things. Some things like follows are not yet done through the API but continue to work normally. This update also allows a better handling of any spiking gas fees on Polygon so we can provide a more stable service for everyone. Your posts will still be indexed to the chain just like before so for a user this does not cause any changes beyond the first need to sign in again.

Hot tip for mirroring Click on the Lens logo on the top of the feed page to access a Lens-only feed and look for posts with the topic “Lens”. They have been created outside Phaver and have no topic so you can be the first one to put them in the right place.
Additional version 5.9.67 information! As you might have noticed, we have had to revert the Android version back to 5.9.6., and unfortunately this means that you are unable to use the new mirroring feature on Android for a while. What does this mean for Android users? You may need to reinstall the app to access the app again, due to the version change. If the app asks you for an invite code, remember to use EARLYBIRD
