Last week we reported that according to TNW, it seems that Instagram is testing out a handful of new and cool features. One of those features is the ability for users to archive their Stories, whereas before users could only choose to download them, as opposed to archiving it. The good news for avid Instagrammers is that it looks like some of those features are here.
Instagram has announced an update in which it will affect the Stories feature. One of those changes is the ability to archive stories so that you can view them whenever you want via your Instagram page. The other is the ability to create Stories Highlights, which according to Instagram is a way for users to group and share their stories and feature them on your profile.
According to Instagram, “Over the past year, Instagram Stories has become a key part of how you express yourself — but there hasn’t been an easy way to keep your stories around for more than 24 hours. Now you can more fully express your identity by grouping stories you’ve shared into highlights and featuring them on your profile.”
These changes should already be live for both iOS and Android versions of the app. Note that these are just some of the new features we reported on last week, and that there are more that have yet to be released publicly, such as native regramming, but hopefully we’ll see those features launched soon.
