Instagram's latest features - Archive and Highlights

The new feature will be available in version 25 of Instagram for Android and iOS

From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive.

Instagram Highlights permanently appear on the users' profiles to showcase their favorite Instagram Stories. You can also remove certain stories from your Highlights when you're over them. When you're finished, the story highlight will sit on your profile page to the right of the "new" bubble, where users tap to view it.

Instagram users can now set a Story Highlight - a semi-permanent Story loop that acts as an introductory look at your Insta. From there, you can choose any stories from your archive (detailed below), select a cover for your highlight and give it a name. The features tend to change the popular stories and make it more interesting. In past, it was not possible to save your Stories more than 24 hours, but now Instagram will automatically save all of your Stories. Archived stories will appear in a grid with the most recent stories at the bottom.

If you're a Stories kinda person on Instagram, go check it out.

Unlike a traditional Story, highlights will remain on your profile until you remove them. 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. This will appear in a new section in the user's profile just below their bio.


Today's updates are available as part of Instagram version 25 on iOS and Android.

Whereas before you had to manually save your Stories so you won't lose them after 24 hours, now you can just let Instagram do all the work. And yes, Stories Archive can be turned off altogether for those who prefer to live (and 'gram) in the moment.

Let's take each in part and see what they do, although you probably have already deduced for yourself.

You can edit, re-size, move and add stickers to the pair of photos before sending them back. That meant it could feel like you were spamming friends if you wanted to share niche content, deterring content creation.
