Insta users can now post a story and not worry about having to download it if they want to view it after the 24-hour mark. A new Highlights feature lets you use them again too. 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. There, the saved Stories will live alongside any posts you've previously archived.
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. Together they alter how profiles look and work, in a dramatic redesign apparently intended on making stories more useful.
Thank goodness, because this is what Instagram Stories didn't have that Snapchat does.

To access your archived stories, head to your main profile page by tapping on the person icon in the bottom right corner of the app.
And for good reason - part of the company's reasoning behind Stories in the first place (besides competing with Snapchat, that is) was that users were so exacting about what was on their profile that they weren't posting almost as often as Instagram wanted. As it sounds, the archive lets you save your past Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date. Now, the company is adding a new feature that will add your expired stories to a private archive.
The second feature that is coming to Stories is called Archive. To add a profile highlight, you tap the circle on the top left of your profile page. Using the menu, you can add old Stories to your current one as a #ThrowbackThursday type of thing or you can share it as a regular post. "This makes it easy for you to revisit your favorite moments later on or bring them back to life in a highlight", the company explained on its blog. Just go to your profile settings and toggle off Auto-archiving. 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 Stories Highlights and Stories Archives will be rolling out to iOS and Android users on Tuesday. Many younger users spend hours carefully curating the photos they have on their profile pages.
