Snapchat is rolling out a huge update

  Snapchat is rolling out a huge update Snapchat is going to sport a very different look. The messaging app's parent company, Snap Inc., detailed Wednesday a massive update that it says will draw a clear line between messages you send to friends and content users consume through Stories, which often include short, text-heavy videos from news publishers such as CNN.

Instagram today announced two new features which change its popular Stories for the better. The first new feature is a Story Archive. As it sounds, the archive lets you save your past Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date.

Insta users can now post a story and not worry about having to download it if they want to view it after the 24-hour mark. One of the biggest attractions of Instagram Stories has been the fact that the feature lets you capture any moment in time without making it a permanent thing.

The first new feature is a Story Archive. As it sounds, the archive lets you save your past Stories beyond their traditional 24-hour expiration date. This was one of the features spotted by our own Matt Navarra among other beta features.

Only you can see your archive, and you can turn off the feature if you want your Story to disappear as usual. To access the archive, click the clock icon in the top-right corner of the app.

The other major update is Story Highlights, which lets you display your favorite archived Stories on your profile. You can save your highlights into individual Story reels which appear as circles on your profile.

Stories are coming to YouTube next

  Stories are coming to YouTube next YouTube is testing a new feature called “Reels” that, at least in concept, will be similar to the Stories you see every day on Snapchat and Instagram. YouTube is diverging from the typical Stories formula in several ways. Most notably, Reels won’t disappear after 24 hours or some other arbitrary amount of time. And YouTube will let users have multiple Reels — each with its own set of videos. That’s different from Instagram and Snapchat, where your temporary posts are part of one, centralized story.

For example, if you want to share a series of Stories from a recent vacation, you would save them to your profile under the name “Sea Trip” or the like. Then, when someone visits your profile, they see it as one Story under that name.

Each of the updates adds new appeal to Story content — not only does it give your Stories added value, but it gives you an additional way to spruce up your profile. I think there should be a way to integrate them into your main gallery, but that’s due to the part of me that loves the orderly grid.

Both updates roll out today on the iOS and Android apps.
