Instagram launches Stories Archive and Highlights

"Stories Highlights appear in a new section on your profile below your bio. 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. Stories Highlights is a new part of your profile where you can express more of who you are through stories you've shared. One example of this from Instagram is a user can show off the start of their season playing soccer, adding new Stories to their Highlight along the way, all the way up to the end of the season so they can show off the most noteworthy moments from start to finish.

Instagram users can now set a Story Highlight - a semi-permanent Story loop that acts as an introductory look at your Insta.

The site has launched two new features: Stories Highlights and Stories Archive.

To create a highlight for your profile, tap the "New" circle on the left side of your profile, choose something from your archive, select a cover for your highlight, and give it a name. Unlike traditional stories, highlights don't disappear after 24 hours, they only go away after you delete them. Just tap on a story to rewatch it or add it to a new story, share it in a post, or add it to a highlight (more on that below). Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature. But there are more substantial changes than that too, and the features together offer major changes to the way that the recently introduced stories feature works. And the other, Stories Archive, is meant to help you hang onto the Stories you really want to save. The first story from each day will show a date indicator to help you navigate your archive as you scroll.

If you updated Instagram on iOS and Android today, you may have noticed a few tweaks to Instagram Stories and your profile page.

As mentioned above, Instagram is also getting a Stories Archive feature.
