Lately, Instagram added the ability to upload images and videos from the mobile website. The platform received the new face filters feature just like Snapchat.
Now, Instagram has got another new feature. Well, the talk is about the new Archive option that has been rolled out to the Android and iOS versions of the app. This feature has been awaited by the users as it enables hiding the posts from the users' profile without actually deleting them. This Archive feature will help you hide some of the photos or videos that you have posted on Instagram on a temporary basis.
When it comes to the functioning of the new Archive feature, it is simple. All you need to do is, just click on the menu button of the specific photo that you want to hide from others. Now, you will get the Archive option on top of the rest. Just click this option to hide the post.
There is a new Archive icon beside the discover people icon in the profile page. After clicking the Archive icon, you will be able to see all the archived photos in one place. If you want a specific photo or video that has been archived to appear on your profile, you just have to click on it and set it to 'show on your profile'.
That's it! The useful Archive feature on Instagram is as simple as this to use and you can hide the posts and make them appear on your profile as per your preference.
