  • Instagram Announces New Stories Archive and Stories Highlights

Throughout 2017, we've seen Instagram roll out new features Stories at a fairly consistent pace. Stories Highlights is a new part of your profile where you can express more of who you are through stories you've shared. On your archive page, you can switch between Stories and posts by tapping the arrow beside the word "Archive" at the top of the screen. There you'll be able to toggle between archived images as well as archived stories. Simply tap the Archive button in your profile and then you'll be able to look at both your Posts Archive and your Stories Archive (which are kept separate). These "highlights" appear as circular icons in a dedicated section on your profile page, just below your bio. When your regular Stories expire after 24 hours, they will be automatically archived. From there, choose any stories from your archive, select a cover for your highlight and name it.

The platform said a lot of users were downloading their stories but a usual complaint was that it was gone before they had the chance to save it to their phone. "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.

If you updated Instagram on iOS and Android today, you may have noticed a few tweaks to Instagram Stories and your profile page. To create a highlight, simply tap the "New" circle at the far left.

One annoying thing is that your newest Stories appear at the bottom of the grid instead of the top. Selected Stories will have a blue checkmark on them. And it gives people a new way to highlight them afterwards, with a major new change to the way profiles work.

Russian Federation to list USA media as 'foreign agents'

This will prompt you to take a photo, which will be included in the message along with the photo you received.

Users will have the option to cancel the search, proceed with it and see the posts they were looking for, or learn more about the problem. Just long-press on the highlight and a menu will pop up. If you choose Delete, make sure to confirm your choice in the next pop-up.

Highlights can be edited or removed at any time; to do this, tap and hold the highlight you with to edit.

Adding more photos or videos to your highlight works the same way.
