Instagram adds Stories Highlights and Archive

Instagram Instagram

To create a highlight, tap the "New" circle at the far left.

And for good reason - part of the company's reasoning behind Stories in the first place (besides competing with Snapchat, that is) was that users were so exacting about what was on their profile that they weren't posting almost as often as Instagram wanted. Previously, messages posted to Stories disappeared forever after a day. You can then use the archived Stories to build Stories Highlights in which you can group previous Stories and feature them on your Instagram profile.

"Over the past year, Instagram Stories has become a key part of how you express yourself - but there hasn't been an easy way to keep your stories around for more than 24 hours", Instagram said in its announcement.

Once a Story is saved to your archive, which is private, you now have the ability to publicly share it in a more permanent way with Instagram's new "Story Highlights". After selecting the stories you want to package together, you pick a cover photo, give it a name, and post it to your profile.

Highlights could enliven profiles with the typically more candid photos and videos that often appear in stories. If you want to go back in to edit or remove it at a later time, simply press and hold the highlight. From the best moments of your ongoing soccer season to all the stories you capture of your loved ones, the interests and activities that matter most to you have a home right on your profile.

Google fixes Pixel 2 audio distortion issue
If you get the December 1st security update, then your device will have all the patches from it and previous security updates. The dedicated bulletin for Google's phones and tablets lists 48 additional fixes, though no functional updates are mentioned.

And the other, Stories Archive, is meant to help you hang onto the Stories you really want to save.

The archive is presented in reverse-chronological order, with the most recent stories at the top.

The new update seeks to address those problems by allowing people to hold onto their stories once they are posted. Stories are stamped with a date to help you navigate while you scroll. To create one, open up a story in the archive and tap the ellipsis (.) button to get started. From there, you can add it to your story, share it as a post or add it to a highlight on your profile.

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