You can save the Instagram Stories into an archive and build a highlights reel from previous Stories, the app announced on its blog Tuesday. Stories, which are collections of personal photos and video, previously expired in 24 hours. 

With Stories Archive, the app will automatically save your Stories. 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.
