Instagram brings Story Archive and Story Highlights in Latest update

Instagram brings Story Archive and Story Highlights in Latest update

Instagram introduced two new features for its oh-so-popular photo sharing app this week - Stories Highlights and Stories Archive. Plus, you can now create Stories Highlights so other people can relive it too.

The Archive is presented as a grid with Stories being arranged in reverse-chronological order, so you'll get to see the most recent stories at the top. You could make Highlights of a specific vacation, all your selfies, or the cutest dogs you've seen, while brands will surely use it to highlight different product lines and ad campaigns.

'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'. To create a Stories Highlight, tap on the "New" circle on the far left, and choose any of the stories from your archives.

For more information about the new features, visit the Instagram Help Center. 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.

And unlike the traditional Instagram Stories format, this particular Story remains on your profile until you remove it. The Stories can be accessed by tapping on Archive icon on user's profile.

Instagram today announced two new features and both of them have to do with the Stories.

There will be date label on each story. The new component will be accessible from Instagram rendition 25 on Android and iOS.

Thank goodness, because this is what Instagram Stories didn't have that Snapchat does. Stories, which are collections of personal photos and video, previously expired in 24 hours.

Last week, Instagram released another new update, which allows users to edit pictures that their friends send them through direct messaging. Your Stories will be archived automatically and will be private to you. You can download the latest update from the respective app stores below. 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.
