Introducing Stories Highlights and Stories Archive

Share

Now you can more fully express your identity by grouping stories you've shared into highlights and featuring them on your profile.

Facebook Inc. came out with new Instagram features on Tuesday, a day after announcing a messaging service for kids.

It will reside just underneath an Instagram user's profile bio and it will allow for users to add several different Stories into one highlight.

Only you can see your archive, and you can turn off the feature if you want your Story to disappear as usual. To create a highlight, tap the "New" circle at the far left.

Right now, the grid of photos on each user's profile functions kind of like a scrapbook of moments, whereas the ephemeral Stories are more for live updates, but these new features bridge that gap. Together they alter how profiles look and work, in a dramatic redesign apparently intended on making stories more useful. There, you'll be able to easily switch between your posts archive and stories archive.

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

Tap on any story in your archive to watch it. 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.

With Stories Archive, the app will automatically save your Stories. 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. Nine times out of 10, it absolutely won't be as good as you remembered, but having the option to resurrect a Story is something I've certainly found myself thinking about on more than one occasion.

Once a Story is saved to your archive, which is private, you now have the ability to publicly share it in a more permanent way with Instagram's new "Story Highlights".
