Instagram has been continuously rolling out new features on the platform. These features have proved to be quite useful for E-Commerce businesses. For every new feature, there is a hack. One such is there for Instagram highlights.

For stories to be a part of the Instagram highlight, they have to be present for 24 hours on your profile. Post this, the stories can also be a part of your profile for a longer duration through IG Highlights.

After 24 hours when a story is no longer visible and is a part of the archive, it can be reposted on Instagram highlights and that’s how the hack works!

So you can include stories older than 24 hours in your highlights too.

There are two ways to do this-

  1. Through IG Highlights
  2. Through Archive

Through IG Highlights-

  1. Long Press on a particular highlight in which you want to add the story
