Instagram finally lets you save Stories so people can enjoy them forever

Insta users can now post a story and not worry about having to download it if they want to view it after the 24-hour mark.

One of the biggest attractions of Instagram Stories has been the fact that the feature lets you capture any moment in time without making it a permanent thing. Stories Highlights is a new addition to your Instagram profile. From there, choose any stories from your archive, select a cover for your highlight and name it. When your regular Stories expire after 24 hours, they will be automatically archived. The basics of what this allows you to do is take Stories that you've shared and group them into a featured post right on the top of your profile page. Just tap on a story to rewatch it or add it to a new story, share it in a post, or add it to a highlight (more on that below). You can add them to your main feed, for instance, or use them to add to the highlights section of your profile - alternatively, you can turn off the archive feature entirely.

While Instagram wasn't the first social network to introduce Stories to the world, it has definitely doubled down on the feature, and Stories has quickly become one of the most popular parts of the service. Now, you might have noticed that we said you can select the stories you want to highlight by accessing your Stories Archive.

'In your Stories Archive, your stories will appear in a grid with the most recent stories at the bottom, ' according to Instagram.

Shohei Ohtani rules out Red Sox and Yankees, prefers West Coast
The 23-year-old Japanese star faces a December 22 deadline to close a deal with the Major League Baseball team of his choice. Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement.

That day-long deadline has been a central part of stories since they launched, with the idea that they would disappear quickly and encourage people not to overthink their posts. This makes it easy for you to revisit your favorite moments later on or bring them back to life in a highlight.

Share to WhatsApp: Allows you to easily share posts or profiles to friends via WhatsApp.

To get started, tap the New circle on the far left of the profile page. Just go to your profile settings and toggle off Auto-archiving. You'll find Stories Highlights on your profile below the biography.

The other Instagram update is related to its new Stories archive. There's no limit to how many you can add, but if you get exhausted of a particular highlight you can delete it or edit it.
