In your profile settings you can disable archiving your Stories at any time. From there, you can easily switch between your Posts Archive and your new Stories Archive. Basically, if you use Stories a lot, you can make compilation Stories from past videos you have shared.

Stories Highlights will appear in a new section on user's profile below their bio.

Today we're introducing two new tools that let you hold on to your favorite moments from Instagram Stories and share them in ways that help you express yourself. It looks like the Stories section in the regular Instagram feed, but it's dedicated to only showing the user's best and favorited Stories. The latter will appear in a grid with the most recent ones at the top.

Instagram just made it incredibly simple to keep your Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date.

The second feature that is coming to Stories is called Archive.

You can find them by going to your profile page on Instagram. This is a big step for Instagram, and especially useful for brands/influencers/celebrities who want to share their content for more than a limited time.

You can edit, re-size, move and add stickers to the pair of photos before sending them back.
