Instagram now lets you archive your stories

Instagram now lets you archive your stories

Instagram introduced two new features for its oh-so-popular photo sharing app this week - Stories Highlights and Stories Archive. You can add it to your stories, share it as a post or add it to a highlight on your profile. From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive.

Instagram continues to build upon Stories, adding new elements that make it worth using.

Another feature Instagram launched today is Story Highlights. As it sounds, the archive lets you save your past Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date. With Stories Archive enabled, your Stories won't disappear after 24-hours anymore. Now you can group stories into highlights and feature them on your profile. Just as well, you're the only one who can see your archive, so it isn't as if your friends can go looking at all of your expired stories whenever they want.

While it may seem a little weird to have two new features centered around making stories last longer, that's exactly what Archive and Highlights do.

Obviously, we're all over Instagram Stories these days.

DPS trooper shot dead near Dallas, suspect in custody
Meanwhile, according to KBTX , Black was last booked into the Smith County jail in Tyler on September 7, 2017 on the same charges. Law enforcement officials have arrested 32-year-old Dabrett Montreal Black of Lindale after several hours after the shooting.

The Stories feature is used by 300 million people each day, and while it has always been possible to save individual Stories the process is now fully automated.

To access it, users can now tap the archive icon on their profiles in the top-right corner. It looks like the Stories section in the regular Instagram feed, but it's dedicated to only showing the user's best and favorited Stories.

Both features are available on the latest update of the app.

Let's take each in part and see what they do, although you probably have already deduced for yourself. The archive feature is created to automatically save your stories once it expires after 24 hours. If you have comments regarding the new update do share them below in comments section.

You can edit, re-size, move and add stickers to the pair of photos before sending them back.
