Instagram Stories Highlights, Stories Archive tools launched: Here's how to use

Like your Instagram Story? Now you can save it to your profile. Instagram launches biggest change to profiles in years, adding new stories and archive features

Social Media Gaint, Facebook-owned photo-sharing application 'Instagram' has rolled out two new tools for its Stories feature i.e, Stories Highlights and Stories Archive. Only you can see your archive, and Stories will sit separately from regular posts. 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.

Instagram users can now set a Story Highlight - a semi-permanent Story loop that acts as an introductory look at your Insta. To create a highlight, tap the "New" circle, choose stories from your archive, select a cover and give it a name. Update your Instagram to the latest version so you can enjoy these new features. Whenever a Story you've posted is expired, it is saved to a private database that only you can access. And if you don't want any trace of your old Stories available privately to you, you can opt out and turn off Stories Archive.

If you decide to roll some of those archived stories into a highlight, you need to head into your profile and tap the "new" button in the Highlights section, which will appear below your bio.

Instagram today announced two new features which change its popular Stories for the better.

Instagram will not insert ads within Stories Highlights, and brands will not be able to save an ad to a Story Highlight, according to an Instagram spokesperson.

The platform said a lot of users were downloading their stories but a usual complaint was that it was gone before they had the chance to save it to their phone. Instagram is now rolling out a Stories Archive that will automatically save your stories to your archive when they expire.

Thank goodness, because this is what Instagram Stories didn't have that Snapchat does.

Once you do this, your story highlight will appear as a story on your profile which can be viewed by anyone who on taps on it.

Last week, Instagram released another new update, which allows users to edit pictures that their friends send them through direct messaging. So from today you can save your stories for a period more than 24 hours.

Do you think you'll use these new Stories features? In fact, they will stay on the app permanently until you remove them.
