Instagram is changing its popular Stories feature for better. The app just introduced two new features to make sure your favorite Instagram Stories won’t disappear – Stories Archive to save your stories and Stories Highlights to put them right on your profile.
Instagram Stories has been a great tool for the social media addicts to express themselves over the past year. However, it would disappear in 24 hours unless you choose to download it first. With this archive option, the fear of losing your stories is gone. Once activated, your Stories will be automatically downloaded and stored in your accounts archive. There they will live forever alongside your archived posts. Only you can access your Archive and if you don’t want to be stored, you can turn off the feature as well.
As you’ve archived all your Instagram Stories, now you can publicly share them using the new “Instagram Highlights” feature. This feature lets you show all the sides of your personality, pinning a carousel of your Instagram Stories to the top of your profile as a stand-alone story. Anyone can see your profile can tap on it see view the highlights.
The updates add new appeal to your story-content, showing that how Instagram cares about its Stories feature. They just not only add values to your stories but also let you smarten up your profile a bit. The features are now available for both iOS and Android apps.
