Choose your favorite Instagram Stories from your Archive to create Stories Highlights

Share

You can find them by going to your profile page on Instagram. From there, you can decide to add parts of it to your current Story, share a highlight as a post or add it as a highlight to your profile.

The second feature that is coming to Stories is called Archive.

The company, although not completely abandoning the ephemeral content idea, is now adopting a Stories Archive - a section of the Instagram app that files away previous stories for your reminiscing. They will automatically be saved in the Stories Archive.

If you don't want Instagram to save your stories, select the three vertical dots from the archive page, go to Settings, and deselect "Save to Archive". The feature pins a carousel of Instagram Stories to the top of your profile, where they'll be viewable to anyone who can see your profile.

To create a highlight, tap the circular "new" icon under your main profile picture. "We encourage everyone to be thoughtful about interactions with wild animals and the environment to help avoid exploitation and to report any photos and videos you may see that may violate our community guidelines".

"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", Instagram explained. A long tap on any individual Highlights circle allows you to edit or remove it.

For more information about the new features, visit the Instagram Help Center. Insta now has Highlights, which will offer users a chance to package old stories, give them a name where they will appear on your public profile above your other posts.

The new update seeks to address those problems by allowing people to hold onto their stories once they are posted. Just select a story in the archive to view it. Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature.
