Instagram is really popular social networking app and they try to implement Snapchat cool features with their every update.
Yesterday, on 5th December, Instagram rolled out a new update for their users which has two new features – Stories Archive and Stories Highlights.
Let’s look what they feature has to offer for Instagram users.
Your Instagram stories will automatically be saved to your archive when they expire. This makes it easy for you to revisit your favorite moments later on or bring them back to life in a highlight.
To access the stories in your archive, tap the Archive icon on your profile. From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive.
In your Stories Archive, your stories will appear in a grid with the most recent stories at the bottom. The first story from each day will show a date indicator to help you navigate your archive as you scroll.
Stories Highlights appear in a new section on your profile below your bio. To create a highlight, tap the “New” circle at the far left. From there, you can choose any stories from your archive, select a cover for your highlight and give it a name.
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.
Highlights stay on your profile until you remove them, and you can have as many highlights as you’d like. To edit or remove a highlight, just tap and hold that highlight in your profile.
