How to track field changes and log it in the chatter

In many cases in Odoo, like Opportunities for example, if we change certain fields (Expected Revenue etc.), it automatically logs it in the chatter with the message:

Expected Revenue: 50000 -> 60000

or something like that. Does anyone know how this is achieved exactly? Because, it doesn't seem to send this text as a message when writing a record, it just seems to be part of some default functionality

Hello Shawn,

The main key of the message is "track_visibility" parameter in the fields.
