Instagram launches private archives for your Stories

Introducing Stories Highlights and Stories Archive – Instagram

Instagram now lets you set a semi-permanent 'Story Highlight' on your profile

Once you select a Story, you can re-share it as a post to your profile or a direct message.

Ahead, we walk through exactly how to use each of these two brilliant new functions - so you won't ever again have to wish you saved your Stories from the night before.

To create a highlight, tap the circular "new" icon under your main profile picture. From there, you can choose any stories from your archive (detailed below), select a cover for your highlight and give it a name.

Instagram has unveiled two new features.

It appears as though no stories have been archived before today, so you'll have to wait 24 hours before you'll be able to see anything.

Instagram has announced an update in which it will affect the Stories feature. Now you can more fully express your identity by grouping stories you've shared into highlights and featuring them on your profile. From that point, you can go without much of a stretch switch between your Posts Archive and the new Stories Archive.

Brands would fall more in love with Highlights as compare to regular users as the feature offers an easy way to bundle together related stuff and keep it surfaced at some prominent place in the app. These updates are available as part of Instagram version 25 on both iOS and Android.

Thank goodness, because this is what Instagram Stories didn't have that Snapchat does.

Instagram will now automatically save expired Stories in an Archive. Instead, Instagram will save them in the cloud, where you can privately view, publicly share, or re-download them later. It's a similar choice to YouTube with its new Stories product Reels, which also don't expire after 24 hours.

The platform said a lot of users were downloading their stories but a usual complaint was that it was gone before they had the chance to save it to their phone. If you don't like it, you can turn off auto-archiving.

You can edit, re-size, move and add stickers to the pair of photos before sending them back.
