Facebook unveils new Instagram features with ability to save Stories

There, you'll be able to easily switch between your posts archive and stories archive. You can add up to 100 photos or videos to a single highlight and there's no limit to how many highlights you can post.

The Archive is presented as a grid with Stories being arranged in reverse-chronological order, so you'll get to see the most recent stories at the top.

Ahead, we walk through exactly how to use each of these two brilliant new functions - so you won't ever again have to wish you saved your Stories from the night before.

"To access the stories in your archive, tap the Archive icon on your profile".

Instagram said, "Stories Highlights appear in a new section on your profile below your bio".

The second novelty introduced by Instagram is Stories Highlights which allows users to put the spotlight on a group of their favorite Stories. You can save your highlights into individual Story reels which appear as circles on your profile. Now, the company is adding a new feature that will add your expired stories to a private archive. In past, it was not possible to save your Stories more than 24 hours, but now Instagram will automatically save all of your Stories. In this archive, you can tap on any story to watch it.

Instagram has announced two new tools that allow users to revisit their most cherished Instagram Stories.

The great thing about this feature is that it's a permanent way of showing the user's best Instagram Stories. Then, when anybody feels like visiting the user's profile, they would see all the series as one Story under the tag name provided by the user.

These updates are available as part of Instagram version 25 on iOS and Android. Remember, archived posts are private to a user, and they won't be visible to their friends, followers on Instagram. Just select a story in the archive to view it.

If this feature reminds you of last year's Snapchat launch of its "Memories" section, you're not wrong. In fact, they will stay on the app permanently until you remove them.
