Instagram launches Stories Archive and Highlights

Instagram launches Stories Archive and Highlights

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

The first new feature is a Story Archive. Your highlight will appear as a circle on your profile that can be played as a stand-alone story.

One of the biggest attractions of Instagram Stories has been the fact that the feature lets you capture any moment in time without making it a permanent thing. Highlights will surely be well utilized by brands who pour resources into shooting Stories, and now can create product or campaign specific collections. Next, people can choose Stories they want to archive, and even select a cover for highlight an give it a name.

You've always been able to archive old posts, and now your Stories will automatically be saved to the same folder.

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

Yesterday, Instagram launched two new features which would change its famous Stories for the better.

To access it, users can now tap the archive icon on their profiles in the top-right corner. This way the story can be relived on a future date in the Stories Highlights feature.

Currently, when users want to share each someone's post, they have to either save the image and post it on via their own Instagram account, or use apps designed for this goal, such as Regram.

"Over the past year, Instagram Stories has become a key part of how you express yourself - but there hasn't been an easy way to keep your stories around for more than 24 hours", the company said. 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. This feature is passive and active all the time, so you don't have to do anything special to take advantage of it.
