From there, you can decide to add parts of it to your current Story, share a highlight as a post or add it as a highlight to your profile.

Right now, the grid of photos on each user's profile functions kind of like a scrapbook of moments, whereas the ephemeral Stories are more for live updates, but these new features bridge that gap. As it sounds, the archive lets you save your past Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date.

To view the archive, select the icon on your profile page.

Stories Archive gives you a chance to add your stories to the Archive include. Instead, they will be saved in your own private Archive.

Instagram says the updates represent the biggest change to profiles since 2013. You can also turn off auto-archiving in your profile settings any time you want.

Chad Morris leaves SMU, becomes Arkansas head coach
The Razorbacks have been scouring the coaching market since firing Bret Bielema on November 24 following a 4-8 season in 2017. He won 82 percent of his games and led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back, undefeated (16-0) state championship seasons.

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. And to help you build highlights, your stories will now automatically save into a private Stories Archive so you can easily relive them.

Instagram is working on several other new features, and reportedly inviting people to test the beta version of its Android and iOS apps. As the name indicates, the archive would allow the users to save their stories for later viewing even after the twenty-four hours expiry time.

The new Stories Archive features goes hand-in-hand with Highlights. You can save your highlights into individual Story reels which appear as circles on your profile. The Highlights will stay there permanently on your profile unless you remove it. This will appear in a new section in the user's profile just below their bio. To edit or remove the highlight just tap and hold on the circle. It allows users to show off all of their different personalities and is yet another way to show other people their different interests. Stories Highlights is a new part of your profile where you can show more of who you are through stories you've shared.

Both features are available on the latest update of the app.
