Instagram's Story Highlights feature lets you save Stories forever

Instagram's Story Highlights feature lets you save Stories forever

Video obtained by The Next Web also reveals that Instagram may be testing a GIF feature that lets users search for and place GIFs in their stories and posts, sourcing the GIF's via Giphy.

The app introduced two new features that allow you to save your Stories indefinitely: archiving, for private saving, and "highlights", a feature that puts Stories right on your profile. 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. Once that is accomplished, give your Stories Highlights a name and select a cover.

The first new feature is a Story Archive.

A new update will add Stories Highlights and Stories Archive to the app, to automatically save stories once they "expire" and give users the option to resurrect them in a new section.

The ability to add Stories to Highlights is likely to appeal to younger Instagram users, many of whom pay lots of attention to their digital personas and go to great lengths to develop their personal brands.

The stories feature was borrowed from Snapchat previous year.

NJ director Bryan Singer fired from Queen biopic
At the time, the studio credited the halt in production to Singer's " unexpected unavailability ". According to a report by IndieWire , Singer's absence had pushed Malek to complain to the studio.

Are we about to see the end of net neutrality?
In its essence, that ability to access everything on the web without it favoring or blocking anything is what is known as net neutrality .

Patriots win eighth straight with 23-3 victory over Bills
Following the victory for the Patriots they would improve to (10-2) and will go on to face the Miami Dolphins. Burkhead's first touchdown capped a methodical 10-play, 70-yard drive.

The Stories Archive is available within the archive tab on your profile.

Another copy-and-paste of Snapchat, "Archives" is Instagram's version of Memories. Now, you might have noticed that we said you can select the stories you want to highlight by accessing your Stories Archive.

While it may seem a little weird to have two new features centered around making stories last longer, that's exactly what Archive and Highlights do.

The second feature that is coming to Stories is called Archive.

Save your Stories and use them later.

You can tap on any story in your archive to watch it. From there, you can add it to your story, share it as a post or add it to a highlight on your profile. "To edit or remove a highlight, just tap and hold that highlight on your profile". For those that don't want the auto-archive feature, you will be able to turn it off. "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. Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature. Instagram Stories Highlights and Stories Archives will be rolling out to iOS and Android users on Tuesday.
