How to save Instagram Stories photos for later use | Social networks

Instagram Stories has gained a new feature that lets you save photos and videos using the app's camera. Present in the iPhone (iOS) and Android phone version, the function saves for 7 days any media created using the camera in Stories mode. This way, users can create a temporary library to decide whether to use the files and when to publish them as Stories.

It is important to know that the option saves only the original images made by the camera. Therefore, content containing stickers, filters, markings, and other editing tools will not be stored in the "Recent" section. Images can be downloaded to the mobile library at any time or deleted from the registry.

Check out how to use the Instagram Stories camera to save photos and videos and post later on your phone.
