Instagram Introduces Private Archive To Automatically Save 24 Hour Stories

Instagram launches biggest change to profiles in years, adding new stories and archive features

Many people use Instagram more so now to showcase themselves and their personality, artwork, day-to-day activities, and more, so it's no surprise that Instagram would like to catch up so we can hold onto those memories for more than just 24 hours. You can save your highlights into individual Story reels which appear as circles on your profile. If you'd rather Instagram not save them, you can disable the feature by going into the Settings menu within Instagram (tapping the three dots in the top right), selecting Story Settings, and then toggling the Save to Archive button to the off position.

One of the updates is a feature that will automatically archive users' Stories after they expire.

Both the Stories Highlights and Stories Archive are rolling out now as part of the newest update to the Instagram app, which is also being released today. Together they alter how profiles look and work, in a dramatic redesign apparently intended on making stories more useful.

Instagram is ramping up its battle with Snapchat.

To access it, users can now tap the archive icon on their profiles in the top-right corner.

Recall that Snapchat introduced a similar feature in 2016-and so it's another one copied from the company by Instagram. From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive.

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.

The app will now automatically save users' Stories to their archive page. From there, you can add it to your story, share it as a post or add it to a highlight on your profile. For those that don't want the auto-archive feature, you will be able to turn it off. From here on out, stories that you share will be added to your archive, allowing you go back and revisit them at any time. To edit or delete a highlight, press and hold its icon. This allows some of your Stories to remain on Instagram for more than 24 hours.

The private archive was not all there is today-Instagram also launched a new tool called Stories Highlights. Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature.
