Instagram Update Allows Users To Archive Instagram Stories, Create Highlights

Facebook's photo sharing app Instagram has rolled out two new features for its Stories - Stories Highlights and Stories Archive.

Instagram Highlights permanently appear on the users' profiles to showcase their favorite Instagram Stories. Now, you might have noticed that we said you can select the stories you want to highlight by accessing your Stories Archive.

Instagram continues to build upon Stories, adding new elements that make it worth using. One of these new Instagram features also allows users to pin their favorite Instagram Stories on their profile permanently. To create a highlight, tap the "New" circle at the far left. 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.

Instagram is giving brands a new reason to invest in producing higher-quality Stories.

From now on, all your stories will automatically save to your Stories Archive when they expire. If you're not okay with stories getting saved, you can always turn off auto-archive.

Evacuations ordered in Bel Air as wildfire burns near the 405 freeway
The Getty Center and the nearby Skirball Center are both on the west side of the freeway, and did not appear to be threatened. The Southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway are now open through the Sepulveda pass, but the Northbound lanes are closed.

When the story archive is available for your specific account, you'll get a notification inside the app.

And unlike the traditional Instagram Stories format, this particular Story remains on your profile until you remove it.

Let's be honest, we're all addicted to Instagram. The new component will be accessible from Instagram rendition 25 on Android and iOS. They plan on finding a nice blend between stories and posts to do this, enabling what they say is stronger connections between people and richer self-expression. It's a similar choice to YouTube with its new Stories product Reels, which also don't expire after 24 hours.

The second feature that is coming to Stories is called Archive. So like if you have some recent pictures of a event you attended, you would save them to your profile under "The wedding event". This is a big step for Instagram, and especially useful for brands/influencers/celebrities who want to share their content for more than a limited time.
