To create a Highlight, tap New on the left side of your profile, choose Stories from your archive, choose a cover image for the Highlight, and name it.

For more information about the new features, visit the Instagram Help Center. Once you update the app, your future stories posts will automatically be archived for your eyes only, so you won't need to save them separately to your phone. In this archive, you can tap on any story to watch it. All the Stories you post will be automatically saved to an Archive section when they expire.

Instagram is copying Snapchat's Memories feature and going a step further, letting you create a permanent home to show off formerly ephemeral content. A long tap on any individual Highlights circle allows you to edit or remove it. To access the archive, click the clock icon in the top-right corner of the app.
