Instagram Curating Private Archive For Your Instagram Stories

Instagram finally lets you save Stories so people can enjoy them forever

Instagram just announced two major updates to its Stories feature that are going to change the way you use the app: Stories Archive and Stories Highlights. It will reside just underneath an Instagram user's profile bio and it will allow for users to add several different Stories into one highlight. Once that's done, select a cover for it and give it a name and then it will be posted to your profile as a gighlight, which you can then edit or remove by tapping and holding on it after it appears in your profile.

Moving forward, your stories will automatically save to your archive when they expire. "Stories Highlights" is a new part of your profile where you can express more of who you are through stories you've shared, whereas "Stories Archive" privately saves your Stories for viewing them later.

For example, if you want to share a series of Stories from a recent vacation, you would save them to your profile under the name "Sea Trip" or the like.

Instagram will start saving your Stories as soon as they expire, following an update on Tuesday.

Stunning new super SUV - the Lamborghini Urus

Recall that Snapchat introduced a similar feature in 2016-and so it's another one copied from the company by Instagram. And the other, Stories Archive, is meant to help you hang onto the Stories you really want to save. Previously, messages posted to Stories disappeared forever after a day. Though we did have the option to pick and choose which stories to download (and still do), this will make it easier and not something that you have to moderate yourself. Simply tap the Archive button in your profile and then you'll be able to look at both your Posts Archive and your Stories Archive (which are kept separate). The former appears as a grid with the latest of your Stories found on the bottom.

It appears as though no stories have been archived before today, so you'll have to wait 24 hours before you'll be able to see anything.

For more information about the new features, visit the Instagram Help Center.

Only you can see your archived stories, and you can choose to turn off auto-archiving at any time in your profile settings. You can add up to 100 photos or videos to a single highlight and there's no limit to how many highlights you can post.
