Instagram Introduces Stories Highlights and Stories Archive

Instagram Introduces Stories Highlights and Stories Archive

For those that don't want the auto-archive feature, you will be able to turn it off.

That day-long deadline has been a central part of stories since they launched, with the idea that they would disappear quickly and encourage people not to overthink their posts. "To edit or remove a highlight, just tap and hold that highlight on your profile".

Do you think you'll use these new Stories features? To switch from archived stories to archived posts, select the drop-down in the top left corner and choose "Posts Archive".

And yes, Stories Archive can be turned off altogether for those who prefer to live (and 'gram) in the moment.

Each of the updates adds new appeal to Story content - not only does it give your Stories added value, but it gives you an additional way to spruce up your profile.

Lebanon PM Hariri revokes resignation as all parties agree on deal
On Tuesday, Lebanon's cabinet reaffirmed its official policy of "disassociation", or remaining neutral in regional conflicts.

The app introduced two new features that allow you to save your Stories indefinitely: archiving, for private saving, and "highlights", a feature that puts Stories right on your profile.

Robots are the next step in using technology to explore sexuality. "Once you're done, your highlight will appear as a circle on your profile that plays as a stand-alone story when someone taps it", the company explains.

To create a highlight, tap the circular "new" icon under your main profile picture.

Stories Highlights will enable more customization and self-expression on profiles than ever before - whether sharing the best moments with your dog, your recent family vacation, or a collection of your silliest selfies. Starting today, any Stories that expire will now be automatically stored in the user's archive for later viewing. Though the company (which could go months on end without significant app updates prior to Stories) has been spinning out new features for more than a year now, updates have barely touched profiles. Instagram Stories Highlights and Stories Archives will be rolling out to iOS and Android users on Tuesday.
